The duo formed a rack of 365 runs against Ireland in the Castle Avenue at Dublin.

Put to bat, West Indies openers Campbell and Hope took their time to sit in, but when the duo captured the sense of matters, they began hammering Ireland’s bowlers all around the playground.

Campbell played with a bang of 179 runs, studded with 15 fours and six sixes while Hope enrolled 170 runs, studded with 22 fours and two sixes.

The duo placed on 365 runs, and also their stand was eventually broken in the 48th over as Campbell (179), and Hope (170) were shipped back to the pavilion from Barry McCarthy.

The two batsmen were on track to enroll the maximum partnership for any wicket in ODI cricket. However, the duo missed the mark by seven runs.

The maximum venture in ODI cricket belongs to Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels as both batsmen needed a rack of 372 runs against Zimbabwe from the 2015 Cricket World Cup.

Their venture took the Windies’ complete to 381/3 from the allotted fifty overs.

Defending the dent, West Indies bowled out Ireland for 185 runs along with also the side won the game by 196 runs.
