There have been coincidences in cricket, but this one takes the cake and the baker!

When Sachin Tendulkar became the first man in One-Day International (ODI) history to score a double hundred at Gwalior, against South Africa in 2010, India won the match by 153 runs.

When Virender Sehwag broke that record by scoring 219 against the West Indies at Indore in 2011,India won he match by 153 runs.

And when Rohit Sharma plundered a world record 264 against Sri Lanka in Kolkata yesterday, India won the match by 153 runs!

It may be a bit hard to believe, hence we provide below the relevant portion of the all three scoreboards:
