Records fall at MCG as Head & Warner put England to sword

Records fall at MCG as Head & Warner put England to sword

Melbourne, Nov 22 (UNI) A number of records fell at the MCG on Tuesday as Australia duo Travis Head and David Warner put England to the sword with a brilliant opening partnership in the third
and final ODI in Melbourne.
The pair put on 269 for the first wicket to go narrowly close to breaking their own record for the highest opening partnership by Australia in Men's ODIs, almost beating the 284 they scored
against Pakistan at the Adelaide Oval back in 2017.
It was the ninth biggest stand in the history of Men's ODI cricket and easily surpassed the 182 that West Indies greats Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes scored against the Aussies way back
in 1981 as the largest opening partnership at the iconic Melbourne venue.
They also overtook the 252 that Australian legends Ricky Ponting and Adam Gilchrist managed for the highest partnership for any wicket at the MCG and are now just one of two pairs - along with India's Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly - to have combined for more than two partnerships of greater than 250 in ODI cricket.
Warner was eventually out for 106 in the 39th over, while Head followed suit for an ODI career-best 152 just three Olly Stone deliveries later.
