Yes, that’s right, no other captain has achieved the feat. In the game vs West Indies in Dec’2011, Virender Sehwag was leading the side in the absence of MS Dhoni. He is the Only Captain To Score A Double century in ODI match.
219 runs in 149 balls saw 25 fours and 7 sixes fly off his blade. So until a skipper gets a double hundred in this format, this record is safe for Sehwag.
