Best Partnerships of England in the ODI Cricket
The English cricket team has never won an ICC event in the one-day format of the game. That, however, does not mean their players have not produced good partnerships for their country.
The 250 run stand between Strauss and Trott for the second-wicket is the best for England in the list of best one-day partnerships for England. Strauss again partnered with Flintoff, the explosive English all-rounder, to produce a 226-run stand for the 4th wicket. If they can keep up such a good record consistently, their first World Cup win might not be far away.

One of the earliest teams to have graced the cricket field, England, has a great record in Test matches. The top Test cricket partnerships for them include 411 runs between May and Cowdrey. That is followed by a 382-run stand between Len Hutton and M Leyland.
All the entries in the top-ten best partnerships in Test matches for England are above the 300 runs mark, which not only gives us an indication of the quality of the team but also shows that they have been playing cricket for quite a long time now. These partnerships have helped England achieve the status they enjoy today among the cricketing nations.
