When we talk about highest scores in the One Day International cricket matches, the very first thoughts are about having double hundreds in a 50 over game. While this thing was just a dream for the cricket fans until 2010 when it was made possible by the God of Cricket himself.


Australia v India - Game 1

The case wasn't that there had been no attempts at achieving 200s. The only hindrance was the completion of innings, whether by winning or by completion of the said 50 overs. For instance, Charles Coventry (194), Martin Guptill (189) and MS Dhoni (183) were all unbeaten and had to lose the opportunity of scoring a 200 due to unavailability of balls. Even Sachin Tendulkar had tried it back in 1999 but he failed.


After the emergence of players like Virender Sehwag, Sanath Jayasuriya, Chris Gayle, etc. who are hard hitters, the score of 200 was now very much achievable. The only thing required was a mindset and great form. That's the reason why there have been seven instances of double hundreds in ODIs after Sachin did it in 2010.


The score of 200 by a player guarantees the team a victory might be true but the statement fails when the score is a little low. There have been instances where such a high score couldn't lead the team to victory. Coventry (194) and Matthew Hayden (181) are the ones who would be remembered for such instances. And it is an interesting fact that Sachin Tendulkar has his name on the list as well. This is the proof that cricket is a team sport.


The score of 175 by Kapil Dev was considered to be one of the best performances in the World Cup. But as time and techniques evolved, players went on to score highest numbers in the world tournament as well.


Martin Guptill and Chris Gayle are the two examples of players who have a 200 in a World Cup tournament.


One of the records that can be broken in near future is that a 300 in the 300 - ball game. Now, this might seem to be going too far on expectations, but it takes just one over to make 36 runs. And if Rohit Sharma has got a score of 264, the 300 mark is not unachievable.
