#6 Highest partnership in a game - 372 between Chris Gayle & Marlon Samuels in 2015

Gayle and Samuels scored 372 for the second wicket
Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels registered one of the most historic partnerships against Zimbabwe in the 2015 World Cup. West Indies won the toss and chose to bat first on a batting track.
Dwayne Smith was dismissed for a duck as a Tinashe Panyangara's in-dipper sent him back. The conditions were overcast and hence batsmen played out the initial overs. Having started slowly, Gayle got his hundred off 105 balls. He went berserk after that and became the first non-Indian to score a double hundred in ODIs. His final 115 runs came off just 41 balls.
West Indies' crisis man Marlon Samuels played the perfect fiddle for Gayle as he finished off with 133. Their partnership of 372 is the highest ever partnership for any wicket in ODIs. Although we have seen an increase in the scoring rate, this record might stand for a long time.

#7 Most World Cup appearances - Sachin Tendulkar & Javed Miandad (6)

Miandad and Tendulkar
To play a World Cup is probably the biggest dream a cricketer could have when he starts his career. Two players in Sachin Tendulkar of India and Javed Miandad of Pakistan lived the dream for six World Cups.
Sachin always raised his game in World Cups as he was tournament's top-scorer in two World Cups. His tally of 673 runs in the 2003 World Cup is still the highest in a single World Cup. He played crucial knocks to help India lift the Cup in 2011 after playing six World Cups.
Miandad, on a similar template, made his World Cup debut during the 1975 World Cup. The southpaw was probably the best batsman Pakistan ever produced. It was temperament that rated him among the best and his contribution with the bat helped Pakistan win the 1992 World Cup.
In the current trend, it is rare to see players play for more than two decades. Hence these two might hold this record forever.
