It’s Six years for Sehwag’s double century in International cricket

He smashed the bowlers with sixes and fours, making his first double century in the one-day internationals. Earlier, his teacher surpassed Sachin’s record. He is the second batsman to score the second double in ODI history. He is the highest individual scorer in one-day cricket ever. India’s Rohit Sharma (264) then reached the record.
On December 8, 2011, in the fourth ODI against West Indies, Sehwag made 219 runs from 149 balls with 25 fours and seven sixes. India scored a massive 418-run mark. In the match, India had a huge victory with 153 runs against Windies. This is also the highest number of runs scored by Indians (418) in ODIs.
Virender Sehwag is the third highest individual scorer in one-day internationals. Rohit Sharma (264) and Guptill (237) were ahead of him.
Sehwag, who had scored a ton on his Test debut in South Africa in 2001, was part of the team that won the 2007 World T20 and 2011 World Cup and played his part to perfection. The Nawab of Najafgarh retired from international cricket in 2015 and took up cricket commentary.
