#4.Sachin Tendulkar - 482 Runs (2011 World Cup)
Sachin Tendulkar deluded all those who watched him into believing that the passage of time was just an illusion during the 2011 World cup. The ‘Little Master’, playing his 6th World Cup, had withstood the tribulations of international sport for more than two decades but was still in sublime form throughout the tournament.
Tendulkar scored 120 runs against England in the second match of the edition and followed it up with another scintillating century against South Africa. The legendary cricketer also scored a half-century against Australia and followed it up with an 85 against arch-rivals Pakistan in the semi-final of the edition.
In all, Tendulkar scored 482 runs in the tournament, including 2 hundreds and 2 fifties, at an incredible average of 53.55.
