List of Cricket World Cup records

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Cricket World Cup is a One Day International (ODI) competition in men's cricket. Organised by the International Cricket Council (ICC), the tournament has taken place every four years since it was first held in 1975 in England. The number of teams and number of matches have increased since then, although the ICC declared an interest in reducing the format,[1] following criticism of the 2007 World Cup.[2]

Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar holds an array of individual records in the World Cup. One of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year in 1997, and "the most followed cricketer in the world",[3] Tendulkar has made more scores over fifty, hit more centuries and scored more runs than any other cricketer in World Cup history. Australian Glenn McGrath dominates the individual bowling records, having featured for his country in four World Cups.[4] He has one of the best strike rate and economy rate among any other bowler, having the best individual bowling figures and taken more wickets in the history of the tournament.

Australians Ricky Ponting and Adam Gilchrist with Sri Lankan Kumar Sangakkara lead the individual fielding records. Ponting is the leading fielder in terms of catches made, in both an individual World Cup tournament and in the competition's history. Wicketkeeper Gilchrist has made the most dismissals in a single match and individual tournament, while Sangakkara has the most dismissals by a wicketkeeper in World Cup history. Australia hold several team records, including those for the most wins, the highest win percentage, the most consecutive wins; they were undefeated in the 2003 Cricket World Cup and 2007 Cricket World Cup campaigns.

Records are also kept of unsuccessful performances. These include Canada's lowest score in the history of the tournament, Zimbabwe's record number of matches lost and Canadian Nicholas De Groot's three consecutive ducks.

Notation[edit]

Batting notation

  • (100) indicates that a batsman scored 100 runs and was out.
  • (100*) indicates that a batsman scored 100 runs and was not out.

The result percentage excludes no results and counts ties as half a win.[10]

The closest margin of victory occurred twice in matches featuring Australia and India. However, there have also been four tied matches in World Cup history.[13]

The first was in the 1999 Cricket World Cup semi-final, in which a run out in the final over with only one run required prevented South Africa advancing to the final instead of Australia, who progressed because they had won the pool match between these two teams.[14] The second tied match, in the 2003 Cricket World Cup in South Africa, was a case in which the Duckworth-Lewis method caused a South African loss against Sri Lanka. With the onset of rain, the South African batsmen achieved the score they believed was required to win the match and then blocked out the last ball of the over to avoid losing wickets, however, the score they believed indicated a win actually indicated the score required to tie the match. This tie meant South Africa could not advance to the Super Sixes stage.[15] The third tie happened in a group match between Ireland and Zimbabwe at Kingston in the 2007 Cricket World Cup.[16] The fourth tie happened in a group match between India and England at Bangalore in the 2011 Cricket World Cup.[17]

In 2007, South Africa scored 353/3 in a rain-shortened match against the Netherlands. Their effort came from a shortened game of 40 overs, a run rate of 8.83 runs per over.[18]

The highest score in a World Cup match is 6-417, achieved by Australia, playing Afghanistan in a group match. Having lost to New Zealand in their previous match, Australia asserted their dominance by beating the associates playing in their first World Cup.
