Last year's opening pair of the highest score was opened by Pakistan's two openers Fakhar Zaman and Imam-ul Haq. In the opening opener, the duo added 304 runs for the two Pakistanis. The record was broken by two Caribbean openers John Campbell and Sha Hope. In the first match of the triangular series held in Ireland, the duo added the highest 365 runs in the opening.
They made this historic record in the 43rd over of the innings. The two were separated from Campbell on 47.2th over. Fakhr and Imam have scored the highest runs in the inaugural partnership against Zimbabwe on July 20 last year. Earlier, Sri Lanka's opener Om Tharanga and Sanath Jayasuriya scored 286 runs in the opening pair against England in 2006. The record was immune to a long period of time. Finally, in the opening pair of two Caribbean openers, the world has been recorded. The opening pair of West Indies's second highest run partnership in any wicket, it is. Their best partnership in ODIs is 372 runs. Chris Gayle and Samuels made the pair for the second wicket against Zimbabwe in 2015.
West Indies won the toss and opted to bat in the match held in Dublin on Sunday. The two openers, who were playing for the first time since the start of the innings, John Campbell took his career-best one-wicket haul in ODIs. Shane Hope got his sixth century in his career 50th match. The touring Umdies put the target of 381 runs in front of the Irish in front of two openers. McCullum returned to the wicket with 179 runs in the slip capped Campbell. His innings was 137, with 15 boundaries and six sixes. Another opener Shai Hope came back to the fifth over of the same over. He scored 170 runs from 152 balls. He has 22 boundaries and two sixes from his bat. Berry McCarthy hunts two wickets for Ireland, bowling 10 overs.
