To celebrate his 46 Birthday, we take a look at the moment Adam Gilchrist smashed the second fastest double-century, at the time, against South Africa in February 2002.
His 200 came off 212 balls.
He has since been overhauled by Herschelle Gibbs in 2002-03 against Pakistan (211 balls), Virendra Sehwag against SA in 2008 (194), Brendon McCullum against Pakistan in 2014-15 (186), Sehwag against Pakistan in 2009-10 (182), Sehwag against Sri Lanka in 2005-06 (168) and Ben Stokes against South Africa in 2015-16 (163).
Nathan Astle still holds the record for the fastest Test 200 (153 balls).
