Netherlands Duo Shatter MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja’s Record for Highest 7th Wicket ODI World Cup Partnership

In a remarkable feat, Sybrand Engelbrecht and Logan van Beek of the Netherlands have rewritten the history books by breaking the long-standing record of MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja for the highest 7th wicket partnership in the ODI World Cup. Dhoni and Jadeja’s 116-run partnership had etched itself into cricketing folklore during India’s heart-wrenching loss to New Zealand in the 2019 World Cup semifinal.

Record-Breaking Resilience

Engelbrecht and van Beek embarked on their extraordinary partnership when the Netherlands found themselves reeling at 91-6 in just 21.2 overs. Under daunting circumstances, the duo not only eclipsed the ODI World Cup record but also etched their names in the annals of 50-over cricket as they crafted the seventh-highest 7th wicket partnership in the format.

The Netherlands skipper, Scott Edwards, won the toss and chose to bat first, hoping for a strong opening performance. However, their plans were quickly thwarted as opener Vikramjeet Singh fell victim to Kasun Rajitha’s bowling in the 4th over. Max O’Dowd and Colin Ackerman strove to stabilise the innings, but their efforts proved insufficient. Just as the powerplay was concluding, O’Dowd succumbed to Kasun Rajitha’s spell.

A New Chapter in ODI World Cup History

Following O’Dowd’s dismissal, the Netherlands experienced a steady fall of wickets, and their scorecard read a challenging 91 for 6 in 21.2 overs. It was at this critical juncture that Sybrand Engelbrecht and Logan van Beek came together to create a record-breaking partnership of 130 runs, significantly elevating the Netherlands’ total. 

Their collective effort steered the team to a respectable score of 262 runs, despite challenging conditions. Sybrand Engelbrecht emerged as the top scorer with a remarkable 70 runs, closely followed by Logan van Beek, who contributed 59 runs to the team’s cause.

Sybrand Engelbrecht and Logan van Beek’s remarkable partnership not only secured their place in cricketing history but also rekindled memories of MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja’s iconic collaboration in the 2019 World Cup. This record-breaking achievement stands as a testament to the resilience and determination of the Netherlands‘ cricketers, and it will be etched in the memories of cricket enthusiasts for years to come.
