New Delhi: The day of 24 February has proved to be very special for the two batsmen of world cricket. On this day, both India’s great batsman Sachin Tendulkar and West Indies explosive batsman Chris Gayle made headlines by scoring a double century in One Day International cricket.
Sachin-Gayle became Sultan of double century
Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar (Sachin Tendulkar) scored the first double century in men’s ODI International history 11 years ago on 24 February. Let us know that Sachin Tendulkar made this world record in One Day International cricket on 24 February 2010. Before him, many batsmen reached near the 200-run mark, but no batsman crossed this magical figure.
Gayle explodes after Sachin
After Sachin, Virender Sehwag scored 219 runs in 2011, while in 2013, Rohit Sharma scored 209 runs. At the same time, again in 2014, Rohit Sharma scored 264, which is the world record for the most runs in an innings. After this, Chris Gayle scored 215 against Zimbabwe in the World Cup on 24 February 2015.
