As we all know for the past decade India has got several legends like Sachin,Dravid,Ganguly,Laxman,Kumble.But the two names that stand out from the list are Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid.Their contribution to Indian team individually is enormous.They both have the highest fan base too.Though Dravid has a very high margin of FEMALE followers than Sachin has..But do we all know that this batting pair of Sachin-Dravid together is all set to break another record?
In the 2nd test match at Bangalore,4th innings of the match,Sachin flicked Hauritz through mid-wicket for a single,this was the 6082 run stand between the two legends.Now our Indian hero stand is only in the second spot after the demolishing pair of Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes at 6,137 runs.Its also very pleasing to know that only Sangakaraa-Jayawardane pair is still playing,but they are way behind.Our pair just needs 345 runs to claim the first spot and i wish and hope all the 345 comes during the first test match against New Zeland.
Also tendulkar and dravid have no discrepancies.Dravid averages significantly higher away than at home. It also worth noting that Tendulkar and Dravid have the highest number of century partnerships of any pair in Test match history. When they bat together for any length of time, they are hard to separate.
The top 5 pairs are:
1.Gordon Greenidge-Desmond Haynes
2.Rahul Dravid-Sachin Tendulkar
3.Matthew Hayden-Justin Langer
4.Mahela Jayawardene-Kumar Sangakaraa
5.Ricky Ponting-Matthew Hayden.
