records of Virender Sehwag Double Century : watch online live cricket ball by ball tv score ipl cricbuzz
Ever since Sehwag stared opening the innings in ODI matches, we looked at him as potentially the only Indian to score double ton in ODI for India. He did it. But it wasn’t as much a surprise for me that Sehwag did it, the only surprise was that he was the second Indian (and in World too) to do it! In a way this was a much expected record from him.
Though I was lucky enough to view ‘the shot’ that made Sehwag’s score read 201*, I was not fortunate enough to see the entire innings. Hence followed the score on the internet. There were few instances when I did not look the score for 8- 12 minutes and suddenly, Sehwag had added 15- 20 runs to his account. Such was the pace and strike rate of his innings that it was just impossible to stop him.
Below is the interesting stats of the highest individual score in an ODI innings broken and held so far.
