The highest 7th wicket partnership for India in Australia is that of over 200 between Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja at Sydney on the India tour of Australia in 2018-19.

204 R Pant - R Jadeja, Sydney 2018/19

Cheteshwar Pujara having sucked the life out of the Australian bowlers by the time the two sides reached Sydney and the pitch not having a lot to offer, the Indian batsmen cashed in, with Pujara scoring 193.

However, the real trouble for the Australian bowlers began when Rishabh Pant and Ravindra Jadeja went on an all-out attack. While Pant remained unbeaten on 159, Jadeja was finally bowled by Lyon on 81 as India declared at 622 for 7. Unfortunately, due to rain, a result was not possible.

132 V Hazare - H Adhikari, Adelaide 1947/48

India were up against it on the team's tour of Australia in 1947-48. In the 4th test match of the series at Adelaide, Australia piled on 674 runs on the board. India replied with 381 in their first innings. Following on, the team was in dire straits, struggling at 139/6.

This is when Hemu Adhikari and Vijay Hazare played their part in salvaging some pride. While Hazare scored 145, Adhikari did his job with 51 off 210 deliveries. However, India were not successful in saving the match.

123 W Sundar - S Thakur, Brisbane 2020/21 It was a do-or-die moment in the series with India struggling due to a long list of injuries. To add to that, Australia won the toss in the final test match of the series at the Gabba and decided to bat first. They scored 369 which might not seem an awful lot but is generally more than enough at the Gabba.

India found themselves at 186/6 when Shardul Thakur and Washington Sundar steadied the ship. They added over 100 runs between them, with both striking half centuries. It was this partnership which kept India in the game.

The team then showed great fight by bowling out Australia for 294 in the second innings and then chased down the 329-run total with gusto to create history at the Gabba.
