The OP asked:I get what you're saying, but look at the original question.
When a batsman retires hurt, that's not the end of the 2nd wicket partnership. That's just the end of the partnership between those two batsmen. The next man out is still going to be the 2nd wicket.
Partnership records presumably look at the most amount of runs scored between 2 batsmen, not necessarily the total amount for a wicket.
AndrewB gave the answer. There are two partnerships for the second wicket, which are not summed when treating partnerships in overall records.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?
I don't see why you're so insistent on contesting this. It's the accepted convention.
