I'm finding some weird partnerships when a batter retires during the innings.
See the following match:
When i run the Partnership report for this season for this grade - just so i can get this match to appear in the following report:
The partnership between players Morynko and Hosking is stated as 68 runs for the 6th wicket in the Partnership report (highlighted below) but they did not even bat together..
I've found quite a few other similar instances when a batter has retired during the innings.

Hi Joel - did that solve your data issue?
I haven't had a chance to revisit this issue as i will need to find the old scorebooks to check but i know it won't have the score when the retired batsman left the field... so I would have to make it up!
From my investigation/experience there seems to be 2 theories to batting partnerships –
a) The partnership is only between 2 batsman, so once a batsman is dismissed or retires that is the end of the partnership – so there is only ever 2 batsman in a partnership
b) The partnership is for the wicket, so if one batsman retires than another batsman comes in and the partnership continues until a batsman is actually dismissed - so there could be multiple batters in the partnership.
It appears that our club has always adopted scenario b) above in regards to our partnerships. However when looking at the www.espncricinfo.com website they seem to generally go with Option a) - which is how CricketStatz also calculates partnerships with retirees.
