In 1999, Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid stitched together a partnership in an ODI against New Zealand, which even today, is the highest partnership for any wicket in ODIs. In 2nd ODI of the series in Hyderabad, Ganguly was run out after 10 balls in the 1st innings, with just 10 runs on board. For the next 277 balls, not a single wicket fell, and 331 runs were scored. Single minded dominance was exhibited by two Indian batsmen who feasted on the likes of Cairns, Styris, Astle and Vettori. Dravid amassed a run-a-ball 153, with 15 fours and 2 sixes. Sachin remained not out and posted his highest individual score (at that time) of 186 off 150 balls, with 20 fours and 3 sixes. India made 376 and dismissed New Zealand for just 202.
