These partnerships haven't gotten their dues in this board. These partnerships were not formed in the old ways (going into shell or slogging). These partnerships with their rotation of strikes felt like the recent Dravid-Kaif partnerships.

This is a huge development, but its becoming friday evening press briefing because of the middle order collapse.

Unfortunately this love affair between the partners becomes so intense that when one dies the other one dies with him. Well to think of it so does several fans who come to bat after them. Ok never mind...

Whats your observations on those partnerships

Aftab likes Rajin, but Rajin avoid Aftab
Bashar loves Aftab, but Aftab hates Bashar

Nafis loves Rajin, but Rajin adores Nafis
Nafis fears bashar, but Bashar like Nafis...

They all love Dav in dressing room and start missing him too early while in the field.

or someting like that I guess.

it is indeed a HUGE development. they're finally learning how to form big, run scoring partnerships in odis. one of the main reasons behind aus and nz's success is their ability to score fluently in the middle overs with 1s and 2s. we cant emphasize this enough.

the next thing to learn is how to use these partnerships in the top order and go for big scores.
