Highest Individual Score – Year by Year (since 2010)

Rohit Sharma, in particular, has scored 8 150+ ODI scores which includes 3 ODI double centuries, since 2013.

In Tests, David Warner’s 335 against Pakistan in 2019 is the last decade’s highest individual score in the longest format.

This article here will list down the highest individual batting performances every year, since 2010.
