    A Record which will be Hard to Break, 264 off 173 balls: Rohit Sharma

    264 off 173 balls the highest ever score by any batsman in ODI, and the record will be hard to break. In the history of Cricket, scoring a double ton is very hard and we don't see quite often. But, Rohit Sharma did it twice 209 back in 2013 against Australia and this 264 miracle knock against Sri Lanka. In the brilliant knock Rohit Sharma has created seven new record.

    Sharma's innings demolishes Virender Sehwag's previous record of a 149-ball 219 against the West Indies in 2011. Sharma also has the third top score in ODIs with his 209 off 158 balls against Australia in November last year.

    Sharma's knock got off to a modest start with the opener reaching his hundred in even times, with his first 50 off 72 balls and his second 50 in a swift 28 deliveries.

    From then it was a procession for the right-hander. His third 50 took 25 balls and the 50 up to his 200 took just 26 deliveries. With the end in sight, and Sharma looking to cash in knowing 350 is an achievable target at this ground, he reached 250 in a further 15 balls.

    Sachin Tendulkar (200*) And Virendra Sehwag (219) have also scored double century in the same format of the game.
