ROHIT SHARMA VS SRILANKA: – The mammoth 264 run innings by the Hitman should be called the mother of all hundreds, which is the world record for the highest individual score in ODI Cricket. Rohit’s 264 comes against the Sri Lankan side who were not formidable they once were. This time around Rohit made up for the failure when he fell 10 runs short of the then-record held by Virender Sehwag — 219 against the west indies.

Rohit Sharma’s innings progression against Sri Lanka: 50 in 72, 100 in 100, 150 in 125, 200 in 151, 250 in 166, and he finished with a score of 264 in 173 balls. He lit up the Eden Gardens and the 2nd highest run-scorer that day was Virat who scored a half century.

ODI double centuries: Virender Sehwag

VIRENDER SEHWAG VS WEST INDIES: – West indies again? Seems like they have a special habit of getting smashed by one player. Virender Sehwag scored a mesmerizing 219 run inning against West Indies at Indore. It was the highest ever ODI score at the time.

Virender Sehwag is without a doubt one of the greatest opening batsmen ever in the history of cricket. In a career spanning more than 14 years, the swashbuckling Delhi opener redefined the opening batting in all formats. While the people will remember the two triple centuries in test matches, his ODI double century in 2011 in Indore is equally memorable. Incidentally, that special double hundred knock turned out to be his last century for India in ODIs so it will always be cherished by the fans all over the world.

CHRIS GAYLE VS ZIMBABWE: – On 24th February 2015, Chris Gayle became the first man to score a double-century in the World Cup. The West Indies legend achieved the incredible feat in the clash against Zimbabwe in a group game in the World Cup against Australia. Gayle’s knock is special since it came exactly five years after Sachin Tendulkar’s double century in ODIs against the Proteas in 2010. Chris Gayle scored the fastest 200 in ODI.
