Thendulkar notches one day double ton

India's Sachin Thendulkar became the first player to score a double century in a one day international when he scored 200 runs in the on-going series against South Africa.

Before Thendulkar's double century the highest score was 194, a record which was jointly held by Zimbabwe's Charles Coventry and Pakistan's Saeed Anwar.

Its interesting to note that Thendulkar's previous highest score was a 186 noy out which he scored against New Zealand in 1999.

I think its fitting that Thendulkar has created this record for himself after having played so well at the top level for a long time.

I also think that this will be a record that will take some time to match and overtake.

South Africa lost the match by 153 runs.
