World News – UA – Pucovski and Harris break record for Waugh Sheffield Shield twins


The 30-year-old Sheffield Shield partnership record set by Steve and Mark Waugh has been broken, with Victorians Will Pucovski and Marcus Harris setting a new mark of 486 on Sunday

The Waugh Twins’ 464-time fifth-wicket partnership for NSW against Western Australia at WACA Ground in December 1990 was the record for any partnership in the Shield’s nearly 130-year history. But Victorian openers Pucovski and Harris surpassed that total on Sunday morning on Matchday 3 of their team’s game against South Australia at Glenelg

The stand finally ended when Harris fell for 239, caught behind Wes Agar’s bowling alley

Harris had resumed undefeated in 207, entering his double century in the shadow of the stumps on Saturday

He’s looking to regain his test spot after being dropped following last year’s Ashes tour, while the prodigious Pucovski – who made his best first-class score passing 243 on Sunday – s’ is declared available for test selection this summer after retiring by last year’s calculations for sanity reasons He typically hit at No3 but was bred to open in front of Nic Maddinson for this year’s Vics’ Shield opener with the opener coming out of the test, Joe Burns, fell in love with a duck on Sunday morning while playing for Queensland against NSW, which will no doubt lead to further speculation about the safety of his place in the Australian XI

Although this is the Redbacks’ third clash against the Shield this season, it is Victoria’s first as the team had to quarantine themselves upon arrival in South Africa, but Pucovski caught up lost time
