List of Fastest Double Centuries in ODI Cricket Matches

After Hitting a double hundred against hapless Zimbabwe side in the Match 15 of 2015 Cricket World Cup at the Manuka Oval in Canberra, Chris Gayle made 200 of 138 deliveries that included nine 4s and 16 mighty 6s off his blade. Gayle broke the record of fastest double century held by India’s Virender Sehwag as he scored 200 runs in 138 deliveries while Sehwag had taken 140 balls to reach the milestone. February 24 also remains to be the day when first double century in One Day Internationals (ODIs) was scored by none other than the living legend, Sachin Tendulkar. 

Chris Gayle’s double century also makes him the first non-Indian player to join the famed list of individual 200 run-scorers. Rohit Sharma of India still holds the highest individual score in the history of One Day Internationals (ODIs) with his tall innings of 264 against Sri Lanka. Take a look at the videos of the five fastest double centuries made.
