A double century in T20s is only a stuff of dreams not only for a player but  also as a fan. It seems quite implausible but the way modern-cricket has tilted in the favour of batsman nothing is impossible.

Not many years ago, a ODI double century was also a dreamy thought until Master Blaster himself broke the myth by scoring a scintillating 200* in 2010. And since then, it has happened quite frequently as the likes of Virender Sehwag, RohitSharma, Chris Gayle, Martin Guptill and Fakhar Zaman have scored double centuries in the 50-over format.

In a recent talk at Sport 360, former Indian star all-rounder Yuvraj Singh talked about the possibility of hitting a double century in the shortest format of the game i.e. T20.Yuvraj said, ““It (T20 double ton) is very tough I feel. But it is not impossible I would say. With the way the game of cricket is going these days, I feel nothing is impossible. So let us wait and hope for the best.

The veteran T20 star feels that the way the game is heading now  a days, it will not take too long to someone to score a T20 double hundred. The likes of Chris Gayle, AB de Villiers can do it on their day any time.

“Well Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers (South Africa) have retired from international cricket, oh wait, Gayle is still playing I forgot.

“In my eyes these were the two guys who could have scored a double hundred in T20I cricket. Rohit Sharma would be the third guy I can think of when it comes to a double T20 ton,” added Yuvraj Singh.

Currently, the Jamaican Chris Gayle has the highest individual T20 score in an innings. The Universe Boss played a monumental knock of 175 not out against former IPL franchise Pune Warriors. While in international cricket, Australiancaptain Aaron Finch holds the record with his 172-run blistering innings against Zimbabwe.
