World record partnership

Two pint sized Shardashram batsmen Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli added a humongous 664 runs for the third wicket in a Harris Shield game in February 1988 at the Azad Maidan to create a new world partnership record for any wicket in any class of cricket. Kambli made 349 and skipper Tendulkar 326 as Shardashram hoisted a total of 748/2 before taking mercy on a wilting St. Xavier's High School attack, which included future India leg spinner Sairaj Bahutule (27/0/182/0). Xavier's were then throttled out for 154, Kambli grabbing 6/37! Tendulkar made another triple century against Anjuman-i-Islam in the final where no result was obtained on first innings even after four days and both teams were declared joint winners.
