320-run stand between India Women openers Deepti Sharma and Poonam Raut for first wicket against Ireland Women in the 8th match of Women s Quadrangular Series. This is the highest partnership for any wicket in women ODIs and the first instance of a triple-hundred stand in women ODIs. This is also the 3rd-highest stand for any wicket across genders; the record stays with Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels, who had added 372 for 2nd wicket against Zimbabwe in 2014-15; Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar (331 for 2nd wicket against New Zealand in 1999-00) come next.

188 runs scored by Deepti in this innings, the 2nd-highest by a batter in Women s ODIs after Belinda Clarke s 229* against Denmark in 1997-98. Deepti s score is also the joint 4th-highest by a left-handed batter in ODIs after Gayle (215 vs Zimbabwe in 2014-15), Saeed Anwar (194 vs India in 1997), Sanath Jayasuriya (189 vs India in 2000)and Gary Kirsten (188* vs UAE in 1995-96).

7.03 run-rate of Deepti and Poonam s partnership, the lowest among all triple-hundred stands across genders (where balls faced recorded) after Gayle and Samuels (7.48), Dravid and Tendulkar (7.14), and Dravid and Ganguly (7.09).

2nd Indian women pair to score centuries in an ODI innings and 8th overall to do so among the openers. This is also the 2nd-instance of an opener crossing 150 and the other 100 after Belinda (131) and Lisa Keightley (156) for Australia against Ireland in 1997.
