The ICC Cricket World Cup has produced some stellar performances with the ball as well as with the bat. Sometimes, it is the bowlers who need to come good with the bat too in order to frustrate the opposition a bit and break their rhythm.
There is nothing more frustrating for the bowlers than the lower order scoring runs against them even when the top order has collapsed. There have been some performances by the No. 11 batsmen which would surprise everybody, even themselves.
In the list of partnerships with most runs for the tenth wicket in the World Cup, only 3 pairs appear from the World Cups in the 21st century. Here is the list:
