- Here's a list of players who won the most prized tournament for their nation, but could not get their hands on the IPL trophy.
The ICC Cricket World Cup is considered as the mega-event of cricket because of the top cricketing nations of the world gather at one place to determine the best cricketing country of the planet.
Over the years, 11 World Cups have been played with Australia emerging as the most successful team with 5 World Cup wins. India and West Indies have won it twice while Pakistan and Sri Lanka have won it once.
