Rohit only cricketer to score 3 double ton in ODIs

Mohali,

Indian stand-in captain Rohit Sharma on Wednesday achieved a rare record which none other cricketers could have after he accumulated three double tons in ODI’s during the 2nd ODI of the three match series against Sri Lanka here.

Rohit is the only cricketer to achieve this thrice on three occasions in ODIs as none has even reached twice.With double century, Rohit has equalled former batsman Virender Sehwag’s record of 200 runs in ODI innings as captain.

The former India opener Sehwag known for his explosive batting in all formats of the game scored his only ODI double century breaking the record of Sachin Tendulkar making 219 off 149 balls against West Indies on December 8, 2011.

It is quite interesting that both were stand-in captain in the matches they scored ODI double ton as captain.Sehwag took charge as captain after Dhoni took a break for 5 ODI series against West Indies while Rohit was made skipper as Kohli was rested.With Rohit’s 3rd double-hundred and 1st as captain, India have amassed 392/4 after 50 overs.
