Partnership (cricket)

In the sport of cricket, two batsmen always bat in partnership, although only one is a striker at any time. The partnership between two batsmen will come to an end when one of them is dismissed or retires, or the innings comes to a close (usually due to victory being achieved, a declaration, a time or over limit being reached, or the match being abandoned in mid-innings for inclement weather or, exceptionally, maybe between more than two batsmen, if one of the original batsmen is retired not out (rather than retired out), since the particular numbered wicket will not have fallen yet.[1]

Harbhajan Singh and Sachin Tendulkar support each other mid-innings.
