The cricketing world had to wait for three and a half decades of ODI cricket to see a small Indian registered the first ever double hundred. Sachin Tendulkar, aged 37 then, scored the first-ever double century in ODI cricket, and since then it is not an impossible task as many others have also scaled that milestone.
The introduction of T20 cricket and broader bats ensured it is not far-sight anymore. It pushed par-scores with every passing game and the double century column kept finding new entrants. Rohit Sharma has made it a habit of scaling the landmark doing it thrice so far. Moreover, three Indian National Cricket team have achieved this feat- the most by any country.
