List of double Centuries in ODI International Cricket

Date:

ODI Double Century: Cricket is one of the most popular sports in the world. Hence, any big record or milestone that a player achieves will be remembered by the public forever. One such record is an ODI double hundred.

Once thought to be impossible, it was the “God of Cricket” Sachin Tendulkar who first crossed the landmark in 2010. Since then a few elite men’s and women’s players have achieved this record as well.

In this article, we will look at the players who scored the elusive ODI double century. We have arranged the list based on individual scores so that you can get to know the highest ODI score by an individual as well.

Without any further ado, let’s go into the list of ODI Double Centuries:

List of double Centuries in ODI International Cricket

Rohit Sharma (264)

Rohit Sharma

The highest individual score in the world currently is held by India’s Rohit Sharma. The “Hitman” as he is fondly called went berzerk against Sri Lanka in 2014.

Rohit Sharma smashed a whopping 264 in the Eden Gardens at a strike rate of over 150. India comfortably won the match courtesy of the openers’ unforgettable knock. It would be very tough for any player to ever chase this score down in world cricket.

Martin Guptill (New Zealand)

The second-highest score in ODI cricket was scored by New Zealand’s Martin Guptill. Marty Two Toes as he is fondly called scored a blitzkrieg 237* against the West Indies at home.

The match took place in the 2015 edition of the ICC Cricket World Cup. Martin Guptill’s knock was smashed with a strike rate of 145.39. This innings at the Westpac Stadium went a long way in helping New Zealand qualify for the knockout stages of the event.

Virender Sehwag (219)

Virender Sehwag

The opening partnership between Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar would always stay fresh in the minds of all the cricket fans. The duo was meant for each other. Tendulkar liked to build his innings calmly whereas Sehwag would go “Hulk Smash” from the first ball!

Owing to his hitting prowess, Virender Sehwag deservedly got his name in the 200s club as he smashed the West Indies bowlers in 2011. Fresh after winning the 2011 World Cup, the Indian opener hit 25 boundaries and 7 sixes as he scored his personal best of 219 in the game helping India to a comfortable win.

Who better to end the list other than the great man himself? Considered by many as the “God of Cricket”, Sachin Tendulkar has achieved almost everything with the bat. Hence, it is not a surprise as the Great Man himself broke the 200 run barrier.
