After Ben Stokes hit the 2nd fastest double century in Test cricket against South Africa, some viewers requested for a video featuring 10 fastest double centurions in Test cricket.

Here you go guys!

How insane is Sewag with 3

How insane is Sewag with 3 (or was it 4) entries in the top 10 fastest double hundreds but Nathan who? Yes I remember him and was a good batter but hardly worth a mention with the other guys on this list.

@cricketbuffone - any chance of a list of players who have a career double hundred and five wicket haul (not in the same game - dont think there are any, but career). I can think of: Sorbers, Kallis, Stokes, Waugh S, Gillespie (wtf), Akram and here's a wild card - Mudasar Nassar! There must be another Aussie possibly Greg Chappel or Allan Border. Dont think there are any SL's with Sanath the closest but dont think he has a 5 fer in tests.

Stormy, Sehwag currently has

Stormy, Sehwag currently has 4. Before Stoke's knock he had 5 fastest doubles out of 10. Astle in his time was the best Kiwi batsman along with Flemming and he did had an aggressive style of play. On small NZ grounds it wasn't difficult for a batsman like him to score a double that quickly. But, as you said, other batters on this list are way ahead of him.

As to your query, you already named quite a few of them. I will plan for a video later this month featuring all of them. Hope you will not mind waiting for a while:)
