Best Partnerships of England in 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.
