Cricket World Cup Records- Batting


With ICC World Cup 2019 going on and the pitch conditions available in England, we expect this world cup to be a batsmen game. Also we can expect some records to be broken.


World Cup Record for Most Sixes :

At present, the Most Sixes in World Cup record is with Chris Gayle who has smashed 49 sixes in total. However, before this world cup, the record was jointly held by Gayle and de Villiers with both the players having 37 sixes each. But with AB de Villiers not playing this world cup, Gayle had a free hand to this World Cup Record.

When it comes to the World Cup Record of Highest Run Scorer in World Cup, there is not a single challenger to the God of Cricket, Sachin Tendulkar. Even after retirement, Sachin Tendulkar continues to hold the record of having the most runs in the World Cup. He has 2278 runs in 44 World Cup innings, and there is no chance that he would be losing his place in this section anytime soon.


World Cup Record for Most Ducks :

Nathan Astle still stands tall on the list of the Most Ducks in World Cup, with 5 ducks to his name from 1996 to 2003. Also, Eoin Morgan is very close to reaching this point as he too has 4 ducks in world cup. If this cricket world cup record takes a new player this time, it won't be a surprise at all.


World Cup Record for Most Centuries :

Batting records and Sachin Tendulkar go together, and that's the reason why Sachin, even after retirement hold this record of having the Most World Cup Centuries. Also, his record at 6 centuries is only close to Rohit Sharma to be broken.


Highest Batting Average in World Cup :

Lance Klusener holds the record for Highest Batting Average in World Cup with a whooping average of 124 in just 11 innings he played. Indian Hitman Rohit Sharma takes third position in the list with an average of 63.62


Highest Strike Rate in World Cup :

Glenn Maxwell holds the record for Highest Strike Rate in World Cup with a brilliant strike rate of 169.25. Jos Buttler of England seizes the second position.


Highest Individual Score in World Cup :

Martin Guptill with an unbelievable 237 deserves to be at the top of the Highest Individual Score in World Cup List. Chris Gayle who scored 215 stands second. Its interesting that both of them scored the highest scores in World Cup 2015 itself.
