Rohit Sharma owns the record for the most double tons in ODI history:

Rohit’s most recent ODI century came against Australia in Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium in January 2020. At the renowned Oval Stadium in September 2021 during a Test match against England, he scored his final century in international cricket.
With three scores of 200 or more, Rohit has the most double tons in ODI cricket history. The only player in the world to accomplish the feat five times is him.
