West Indies are touring Zimbabwe for a two-match series. 

Kraigg Brathwaite and Tagenarine Chanderpaul completed a partnership of 336 runs, the most for the 1st wicket by an West Indian pair. 

The duo went past the record initially set by Desmond Haynes and Gordon Greenidge.

Haynes and Greenidge scored 298 runs together vs England in 1990. 

The same duo also registered what is now the third highest partnership, of 296 runs against India in 1983. 

Adrian Griffith and Sherwin Campbell held together a partnership of 276 runs against New Zealand in 1999. 

Chris Gayle and Kieran Powell scored 254 runs against New Zealand in 2014.

The only unbeaten partnership on this list is Haynes and Greenidge's 250* against Australia in 1984.
