This video features the Top 10 Slowest Partnerships in Test Cricket. Seven of these partnerships have a run rate of less than 1.0.

Did you know one player features in 4 partnerships and one pair features twice. Can you name the players? 

Good luck!

Amusing this one and I cannot

Amusing this one and I cannot believe the number of times AB makes an appearance here. Just goes to show what a complete batsman AB is, surely one of the most destructive in all forms but features numerous times on the slowest partnerships. I expected AB and Fluff V Aus but I also expected Boycott to feature somewhere and also expected Mudasar Nassar, the Pakistan opener - no idea why, just a name that sprung to mind. What is most interesting is all of the top 10 are in recent times when one would expect guys to be scoring faster than the old days.

Thanks Stormy, so glad you

Thanks Stormy, so glad you enjoyed the video!

Agree with you, AB is a complete batsmen. Given the circumstances, he can change gears effortlessly, his versatility is amazing.

Its funny many people expected Boycott in this list, couple of them also named Mudassar.

Like you the thing that amazed me most was that all these partnerships happened year 2000 onward. I didn't expect more than 4/5 entries from recent times.
