"The Bundesliga, Korean League or specific leagues where players live and train in one city, that can be managed at an elite level where there is money and infrastructure isn't a problem," Dravid explained.

Aiden Markram and Farhaan Behardien put on 272 for the sixth wicket in a South African domestic one-day game last year. Was this a record? asked Stuart from South Africain Cape Town in March 2019. They weren't separated until Markram fell in the final over, after a partnership of 272 - which was indeed a record for the sixth wicket in all List A cricket. It beat the unbroken stand of 267 by Grant Elliott and Luke Ronchi (who thumped 170 not out from 99 balls) for New Zealand against Sri Lanka in Dunedin in 2015, which remains the record for one-day internationals. There have been eight further partnerships of 200 or more in List A matches, including two further instances in 2019. … [Read more...] about Is the difference in Rohit Sharma’s averages in home and away Tests a record?
