From Rohit to Shubman: List of Double Centuries In ODI Cricket


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 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 also achieved this record.

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:
