The 30-year-old Sheffield Shield partnership record set by Steve and Mark Waugh has been broken, with Victorians Will Pucovski and Marcus Harris setting a new mark of 486 on Sunday.

The Waugh twins' 464-run fifth-wicket partnership posted for NSW against Western Australia at the WACA Ground in December 1990 had been the record for any partnership in the almost 130-year-old history of the Shield. But Victorian openers Pucovski and Harris surpassed that total on Sunday morning on day three of their side's match against South Australia at Glenelg.

The stand finally ended when Harris fell for 239, caught behind off the bowling of Wes Agar.

Pucovski started the day on 199, bringing up his second first-class double century.

The Redbacks had been bowled out for 200 on day one.
