No trouble with double: Players with most double-centuries in Test cricket

The best batsmen in the world need not be best at hitting double-centuries. Only a few have made it a habit. Sachin Tendulkar and Ricky Ponting, for example, do not match up to Don Bradman and Kumar Sangakkara in their propensity to hit double-centuries.

Here are top five double-century hitters in Test cricket, sorted by the number of double-centuries they have scored.

  1. I think we need to take out Don from batting records as he is simply from a another planet. Having said that, this is what we said about Sorbers will Kallis came along, and in my books, surpassed Sorbers’ record. Much the same way, Kholi will surely go past the Don’s 12 doubles.

    Double hundreds are not for everyone and as the article says, Ponting, Kallis and Sachin probably all have one or two each. Not sure how many Dravid has but I reckon Steven Waugh (who I think also has 10,000 runs) has one. Now here’s another interesting stat – even fewer guys triple hundred but Chris Gayle has 2 test triple hundreds (one against SL in Galle).
