Dropped from the Indian team, Parthiv always staked a claim for a return with his prodigious run-scoring in the domestic circuit. In 2007, the left-hander became the first batsmen to score five consecutive hundreds in the first-class history.

His fifth hundred was against a strong Mumbai attack and is regarded as one of the best innings in domestic cricket. Patel scored 6 centuries and 9 half-centuries that season averaging 68, but could not return to the Indian team as Dinesh Karthik and MS Dhoni were selected over the left-hander.
