The opening pair in Steve Waugh’s invincible team was a great mixture of attack and defence. The duo started their partnership with a bang, with scores of 158, 224 and 223.

They had 6 double-hundred partnerships and their leanest period was in the end when they went 12 test matches without a single century partnership. Nevertheless, they managed an excellent away average of 48.30, which is quite tough in modern cricket. Hayden and Langer have 38 fifty-plus partnerships, roughly one every three innings, which highlights their consistency.
