Record of highest partnership in Australia vs West Indies one day match belongs to opening wicket stand of 206 between Adam Gilchrist and Mark Waugh, a stand that nearly finished the game without being saperated..
Electing to bat, Windies managed only 234/8 in 50 overs, despite good innings by Wevell Hinds (54), captain Jimmy Adams (44) and figher wicket keeper Ridley jacobs (44). It was one of few games Adam Gilchrist captained for Australia, and came in to open with Mark Waugh chasing 235 and missed his century by just 2 runs. Gilchrist made a relatively patient 98 off 122 balls with just 1 six and 6 fours while Mark Waugh contributed 112 not out, from 128 balls. It wasn't just the best Aus v WI partnership, it also broke the record for Australia at Brisbane, for Australia in all home one-day internationals and for any team on Australian soil.
Australians won the game by 9 wkts, with over 6 overs to spare.
Highest partnership for West Indies in one day matches against Australia is the only other double century in following list, and the record that was broken in above match = 205 between Desmond Haynes (80) and Vivian Richards who in perticular was in murderous mood that day, scoring unbeaten 153 from only 130 balls with 16 fours and a six, send likes of Denis Lillee, Jeff Thomson, David Hookes and Rodney Hogg to all parts of Melbourne cricket ground and propelling Windies past 271, a very high one total in those days when format of cricket was just 4 years old.
West Indies went on to win the game by 80 runs.
By wickets, we've already read about Gilchrist + Waugh's double century partnership but interesting is Nixon McLean + Cameron Cuffy's 41 run partnership which although couldn't win the game for Windies, equaled the Jeff Thomson and Denis Lillee's 26 year old record for sure.
