In partnership lists (eg on Statsguru) that would be one partnership of 30* and one of 40.If a batsman retires hurt, how is that considered (if at all) in partnership stats?
Fall of 1st wicket 30-1
Batsman retires hurt @ 60-1
Fall of 2nd wicket 100-1
What is the total of the 2nd wicket partnership and which batsmen were involved in it?
In 1982 India added 415 for their 3rd wicket in the 5th Test against England: 99* by Vengsarkar and Viswanath, and 316 by Viswanath and Yashpal Sharma. That would be India’s record partnership for any wicket, but it’s not generally listed as such.OK. Makes sense.
Has there ever been a wicket partnership record involving 3 batsmen?
I don't ever recall hearing one.
I don't even know who you are, but nice that you've noticed me.It's considered the end of the partnership, just without a dismissal (same as the way the batsman's innings is not out).
Molehill is wrong, as usual.
Except they're way they're actually treated, the total is irrelevant.I don't even know who you are, but nice that you've noticed me.
Anyway, look back at the original question, "what is the total of the 2nd wicket partnership"?
The answer is still 70, but individual partnerships between batsmen are 30 and 40.
PS I've spent rather too much time over the past 10 years scoring matches in Girls Junior Cricket.
Why is the total irrelevant? You could have 5 retired hurts, but if no one is out until 100 runs, the 2nd wicket partnership is still 70.Except they're way they're actually treated, the total is irrelevant.
No it's not because the partnership ends at the retirement. The next one might still be for the second wicket, but it's a new partnership and is not summed to the first. Hence why you do not see the example mentioned by @AndrewB listed amongst Indian partnership records.Why is the total irrelevant? You could have 5 retired hurts, but if no one is out until 100 runs, the 2nd wicket partnership is still 70.
No need to be pedantic, you made a mistake, now move on.....
I get what you're saying, but look at the original question.
