Record of highest partnerships in test match, by all teams, all wickets

 

In Sri Lanka, Sri Lankan batsmen are as big a force as there is any batting lineup at home. clear example of this is first list in following in which first two biggest partnerships in test cricket are held by Lankan batters..

624 = Kumar Sangakkara + Mahela Jayawardene. Electing to bat first, visiting South African batsmen were bowled out for only 169 runs in 50.2 overs. Lankans too lost both their openers inside first 4 overs but what followed after that, is a nightmare Proteas bowlers would love to forget. Kumar Sangakkara and captain Mahela Jayawardene batted out first day, were unsaperated on day 2 and absorbed quite a bit of day 3 during their marathon partnership of 624, from 157 overs. final total = 756/5 declared.

Sri Lanka won the test by an innings and 153 runs, despite 4 fighting hal centuries from visitors.

576 = Sanath Jayasuriya + Roshan Mahanama. made against India which stood as biggest partnership in test cricket for almost a decade. Jayasuriya and Mahanama's partnership had helped Srilanka not only to save that test match after India's solid 556/7 dec in first innings but also score the biggest test match team total = 952/6d which is still the largest by any team and only the second over 900 total in longest format of cricket.

For opening wicket, Neil McKenzie and Graeme Smith of South Africa hold the record for their 415 runs versus Bangladesh back in February 2008, while Gorden Greenidge + Desmond Haynes of West Indies hold the record of most runs between a opening pair in test cricket = 6482 runs from 148 innings together. 

Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid of India have had most century partnerships between them = 16, equal with Mathew Hayden + Ricky Ponting of Australia and Greenidge + Haynes for West Indies.
