However, everybody has seen congratulating Samriti Mandana in the comment box. And also fake picture claimed that she becomes first women to hit a double century in One Day Internationals.
Double Centuries By Women Cricketers
As we can see that picture is claiming that Smriti becomes first to score. But this news is also fake because it has two times already happened in women’s cricket. Belinda Clark of Australia was the first one to score the double century in Women ODI. She scored 229 not out against Denmark in India on 16 December 1997. Amelia Kerr of New Zealand scored the second double century in ODI also surpassing Belinda’s score thus becoming the highest scorer in Women’s ODI. Amelia scored 232 not out against Ireland on 13 June, 2018.
