Summary of World Cup performances

Finally we summarize all performances in the World Cup. All 205 players who played at least one match for any of the 14 teams are included.


Guptill (547) moved just ahead of Sangakkara (541) during the final. Dhawan is 5th with 412, after de Villiers and B. Taylor


Boult and Starc both took 22 wickets, though the latter had a better average, economy rate and strike rate. Umesh Yadav was third with 18, while Shami along with Morkel and J. Taylor had 17.


Haddin leads with 16 dismissals followed by Dhoni with 15. Stumpings were rare with Sangakkara taking the most with 3. Among non-keepers, Roussow led with 9 followed by Yadav with 8.


This lists aggregates in order of the difference between batting and bowling averages. The question of defining an all-rounder now comes in. If we take an arbitrary figure of 200 runs and 10 wickets then only C. Anderson and A. Russell qualify.


Gayle and Samuels lead with 372 for the 2nd wicket
