New Delhi: February 24 was a very special day for the two batsmen of world cricket. On that day, Indian great batsman Sachin Tendulkar and explosive West Indian batsman Chris Gayle made headlines, marking a double century in One Day International cricket.
Sachin-Gayle became Sultan of the double century
Master blaster Sachin Tendulkar (Sachin Tendulkar) marked the first double century in men’s ODI International history 11 years ago on February 24. Let us know that Sachin Tendulkar achieved this world record on February 24, 2010 in One Day International Cricket. Before him, many batsmen reached near the 200 point mark, but no batsman could cross this magic figure.
Gayle explodes after Sachin
After Sachin, Virender Sehwag scored 219 points in 2011, while in 2013 Rohit Sharma scored 209 points. At the same time, again in 2014, Rohit Sharma scored 264, which is the world record for the most points in a round. After that, Chris Gayle scored 215 against Zimbabwe in the World Cup on February 24, 2015.

In the double century of Sachin Tendulkar and Chris Gayle, it was a strange coincidence that both of them achieved this great feat of ODI cricket on February 24th. On the same day, two men became double centuries. Please say that Sachin is called the God of Cricket. He scored 15,921 ODIs and 18,426 races in tests during his career. Sachin has 100 international centuries in all formats.
