Rohit's last double hundred came against the same opposition on November 14, 2014, at the Eden Gardens in Calcutta where he notched up his ODI high score 264, which is also the highest score by a batsman in an ODI innings. His first ever double hundred came against Australia in 2013 in Banglore. He then became the third man in the history of one day cricket and in Indian cricket as well to reach the milestone after Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag.
