Till date, we have Martin Guptill (237*), Virender Sehwag (219), Chris Gayle (215) and Tendulkar (200*) scoring double centuries once in ODI cricket, while Rohit did it thrice and made a record.

Rohit reached his century off 115 deliveries and then he took only 36 balls to reach his double hundred.
To make the match much more memorable, India needs to win the match and that will keep the tri-match series alive.
