The ICC Cricket World Cup involves the best international cricket teams from around the world. Also, some World Cups had the minnows participating. This led to many strong teams taking advantage of their below par bowling attack and made them chase leather.
There have been four totals of over 400 in World Cups. Australia, India and South Africa (twice) have done it in the past. Interestingly, three out of these four scores came in the 2015 World Cup. To make it more interesting, the highest score in the World Cup was scored just a day after the third highest score was posted.
