Cricket, as we all know, is a highly unpredictable game. Apart from being an unpredictable sport, it is also a game that is full of stats and numbers.

And, of course, during the course of the last century, there have been innumerable coincidences with regards to the numbers of two different players or teams that leave fans befuddled.

On that note, here’s a look at amazing cricket co-incidences that are too good to be true:

Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar, swashbuckler Virender Sehwag, and the ‘Hitman’ Rohit Sharma are the only three Indian batters to score a double hundred in 50-over cricket.

While Sachin Tendulkar achieved the feat against South Africa in 2010, Virender Sehwag and Rohit Sharma achieved the same against West Indies and Australia respectively in 2011 and 2013.

Rohit went on to hit two more double tons which also included his highest score of 264- against Sri Lanka in 2014.

In all these three instances of Sachin, Sehwag, and Rohit scoring a 200 [his 2nd double ton where he scored 264], India won the game by the same margin of 153 runs.
