Highest 10th Wicket Partnership in Test Match

Over the last few years, tenth wicket partnerships in test matches have been productive ones. In 2014, as many as two last wicket century run partnerships have been recorded between two teams India and Australia. The English pair of Joe Root and James Anderson added a huge 198-run for the last wicket against India in 2014, and it continues to be world record even now. In the very same match, India gave a strong reply to England adding 111-run stand for the last wicket. Yes, Bhuveneswar Kumar and Mohammad Shami did the unexpected for team India scoring a century runs partnership for the last wicket and that too after a decade.

But after these two partnerships, no team had been successful to score 100 or more runs for the last wicket in since 2014. India’s record is good for this wicket. Historically, they have forged a century run partnerships for the last wicket thrice in the history. The first ever hundred-run-stand for this wicket was recorded by Hemu Adhikari and Ghulam Ahmed when they forged a huge 109-run stand against the arch rival Pakistan in New Delhi in 1952. Here is the complete list and only four times did a team score plus 150-run partnerships for the last wicket in test matches. From 2000 to 2015, as many as 11 hundred-run stands have been registered out of the total 25 century run stands scored for this wicket.
