Records of centuries and double centuries in ODI

1. The first fifty of ODI matches was scored by John Edrich (England) against Australia. He scored 82 runs at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne on 5 January 1971.

2. Dennis Amiss (England) was the first cricketer who scored the first century in the ODI cricket. He scored a first century (103) of ODI history against Australia on 24 August 1972.

3. Rohit Sharma is the highest individual run scorer (264 runs) in the ODIs.

4.  The record of the fastest double century in ODI is held by Ishan Kishan.  Earlier, this record was held by Chris Gayle, but Ishan recently shattered the record by hitting the fastest century ever in the history of ODI. in the final and third ODI match of the series opposite Bangladesh at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittogram, the man notched up a fantastic double century off just 126 balls.

Additionally, it is essential to note that he became the seventh batsman in the world to achieve the milestone after Sachin Tendulkar, Rohit Sharma, and Virender Sehwag.

5. Vivian Richards was the first player who scored 180 plus score in the ODI in 1984. But this record was broken by the Gary Kirsten who scored 188* runs against the United Arab Emirates on 16 February 1996.

6. Saeed Anwar (Pakistan) was the first player who entered into the 190 plus score in ODI. Anwar's record of 194 runs against India on 21 May 1997 remained intact till December 1997. This record was broken by the Australian woman cricketer Belinda Clark. She cracked into 200 plus mark and scored unbeaten 229 runs against Denmark at the MIG Club Ground, Mumbai. 

With his smashing innings of 208 runs, Shubman Gill has become the 5th Indian player to have scored a double century in ODIS. 

So this was the list of all double centuries in the ODI cricket. I hope, more double centuries would be scored by Indian batsmen in the near future.
