    Kumar Sangakkara's innings of 211 in Abu Dhabi is his eighth
    Test double hundred, moving him past England great Wally Hammond, who had
    seven.

     

    Sangakkara trails only Don Bradman, who made 12 scores
    of 200 or more - in just 52 Tests - and Brian Lara, who had nine. Both those
    batsmen had two triple hundreds, while Sangakkara's highest is 287.

    It took India nearly 22 years of playing ODI
    cricket to cross 300 for the
    first time in a match
    and they were the last major cricket team to reach
    that score. Even Zimbabwe had achieved the feat many years
    earlier.

     

    But once there, India have now made scores of 300
    or more, more times than any other team.

     

    The Mohali ODI provided the 65th such instance,
    and India have now overtaken Australia at 64.

     

    Here's a list of ODI teams
    that have crossed 300 in an ODI at least once.
