Double hundred

In cricket, a double hundred is when a batsman hits 200 runs in an inning.

A double hundred is yet to be hit in one day internationals (ODI) with the maximum runs to be hit by a batsman being 194 while the list of batsmen to hit double hundreds in Test cricket is too long to list.

However, the batsman to have hit the maximum number of double hundreds is the one and only Donald G Bradman (Don Bradman) known better as the Don to cricket lovers everywhere. He has had the distinction of scoring 12 double tons in 52 Tests with Walter Hammond coming a distant second with 7 double tons from 85 Tests.
