Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid registered the world record of most 100-plus run partnerships by any pair during the second day of the second and final Test against Bangladesh here on Monday.

Tendulkar and Dravid now have seventeen 100-plus partnerships, one more than the Australian pair of Mathew Hayden and Ricky Ponting and West Indians Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes, who have 16 such stands.

The Indian duo’s world record of most number of 100-plus partnership came after the drinks break in the post-lunch session when Tendulkar also reached his 55th Test fifty in his 164th match when he drove past extra cover for a four.

Tendulkar and Dravid’s 100-run partnership for the third-wicket came from 25.3 overs and included 10 boundaries.
