LC partnerships

Post by cricket_22001 »

Whilst compiling the appearances list, I realised the highest partnerships for each wicket in LC was missing.
And if my research is correct, we had a milestone passed with a new 7th wicket partnership being recorded when Southern Rocks played the Tuskers this current season. So the partnerships are:

1st- 314 Ferreira/Sims Midlands v Mountaineers 02/03
2nd- 342 P Horton/ Ewing Matebeleland Tuskers v Southern Rocks 10/11
3rd - 352 M Pettini/Mutombodzi Mashonaland Eagles v MWR 14/15
4th- 330 Viljoen/Evans Mashonaland v Matebeleland 99/00
5th- 287x D. Housego/Mutizwa Mountaineers v Southern Rocks 13/14
6th- 224 Mupamba/Tiripano Mountaineers v MWR 17/18
7th- 204 Mutumbami/ R. Kaia Southern Rocks v Matebeleland Tuskers 21/22
8th- 237 Blignaut/Hondo Mashonaland v Manicaland 03/04
9th- 141 S Masakadza/Utseya Mountaineers v southern Rocks 09/10
10th- 201 Jongwe/Musoko Southern Rocks v Mountaineers 13/14

I'm pretty sure these are the records. Please amend or update if you know of any mistakes. When researching this stuff, one finds name changes to teams exist & therefore, a whole new entity is created. It can get confusing.
For example, Matebeleland played from 93/94 till 05/06.
Then it was Westerns from 06/07 to 08/09
Then franchise cricket came & Matebeleland Tuskers was formed from 09/10-15/16
Then is was Bulawayo Metropolitan Tuskers from 16/17 to 17/18.
And finally Tuskers from 18/19-21/22.
So a bloke like Dabengwa played for Matebeleland, Westerns, Matebeleland Tuskers & Bulawayo Metropolitan Tuskers & probably never changed his residential address. This exists for all teams except the Southern Rocks who have always been known as such.
So, rightly or wrongly, my records are the original province name from 93/94-05/06. "Compass" names pre franchise cricket from 06/07-08/09. Then the franchise names.
I do have to research the early records when teams such as Mashonaland A & Mashonaland Country Districts existed.
But I'll leave you with this for now.

Remember most of these partnerships, and some we have followed here on the forums through match thread. That 8th wicket partnership though, looks interesting. Could you please share the details and breakup of who scored how much in that one? Must have been a massacre worth watching live :)

Thanks for that scorecard.

Pretty remarkable innings by Gripper as well, ended by BT's very occasional off-spin.

^ Haha wow, very rare. He did bowl a bit back in the day! I can't remember him turning his arm over for at least the last decade or so though.

Props to anyone who remembers him taking 3/54 in this game; https://www.espncricinfo.com/series/zim ... -scorecard
