#: Quinton de Kock (wicketkeeper of South Africa cricket team)
The South African opener was in great form during the group stage, scoring four centuries, including a mammoth 174 against Bangladesh at the Wankhede Stadium.
#: Rohit Sharma (Captain of Indian cricket team)
The India captain and opening batsman scored 597 runs at the top of the order for the hosts, with only his teammate Virat Kohli scoring more runs.
Rohit’s tally is the seventh-highest ever in the Men’s Cricket World Cup, 51 runs less than his own best effort at the 2019 tournament in England.
The nature of the opener’s runs was even more important than their quantity, with his strike rate of 125.94 the highest among any top four batsman in the tournament. Among the recognized specialist batsmen of the World Cup, only Glenn Maxwell and Heinrich Klaasen scored at a faster rate.
#: Virat Kohli (India Batsman)
Virat Kohli performed brilliantly, scoring the most runs by any individual batsman in the Men’s Cricket World Cup. His 765 runs surpassed the previous record of Sachin Tendulkar (673 in 2003) and came at an average of 96.62.
Only twice out of 11 innings did Kohli fail to reach at least a half-century. And his three centuries in the tournament helped him reach 50 career ODI centuries, surpassing Tendulkar for the most in the history of the format.
#: Daryl Mitchell (New Zealand Batsman)
New Zealand’s run to the semi-finals was built on a mountain of runs and Daryl Mitchell played a big role in it. His 552 runs in nine innings came at an average of 69 and a strike-rate of 111.06, and demonstrated his great versatility – sometimes setting the stage and sometimes boosting the scoring rate. His innings of 134 in the semi-final defeat against India was a valiant effort when his team needed it most.
#: KL Rahul (Indian batsman and wicketkeeper)
The right-handed Indian superstar batsman was the epitome of consistency for his team throughout the World Cup, as he scored a total of 452 runs off 10 balls.
Rahul mainly impressed in the middle overs, scoring a tournament-best 102 against Netherlands in Bengaluru and contributing a better innings of 97* against Australia at the start of the event.
The 31-year-old finished the World Cup with an impressive average of 75.33, which was the third best for any batsman during the tournament.
#: Glenn Maxwell (Australia)
Two all-time moments with the bat came from Big Show. With just 40 balls used, his century against the Netherlands was the fastest century in Men’s Cricket World Cup history.
However, his endeavour against Afghanistan was much more remarkable.
Maxwell produced 201* off 128 balls, maybe his best individual innings to date, as he handled the pressure, Afghanistan’s spinners, and the fact that Australia needed 292 runs after falling to 91/7.
#: Ravindra Jadeja (Indian all-rounder)
India’s spin-bowling all-rounder played a vital role for his team, taking important wickets in the middle overs and constantly turning the screws.
His economy rate was one of the best in the tournament, at 4.25 per over, as he brilliantly supported the new ball attack. With the bat, he also played an important role at number seven and scored 120 runs in the middle five matches.
#: Jasprit Bumrah (India bowler)
The spearhead of India’s attack, Jasprit Bumrah was consistently at his best. Despite being a threat in all sections of the innings, it was Bumrah’s new-ball talent that made the biggest impact for his team.
He took wickets throughout the tournament and proved extremely difficult to avoid. No bowler who played more than one match in the tournament was able to achieve a better economy rate than Bumrah’s 4.06 – an all the more remarkable figure considering he was often in action when fielding restrictions were imposed.
#: Dilshan Madushanka (Sri Lanka)
Sri Lanka’s left-arm fast bowler Dilshan Madushanka was a revelation. His 21 wickets placed him firmly among the top five wicket-takers of the tournament and he remained a constant threat with the new ball. His score of 5/80 against India was one of his best efforts.
#: Adam Zampa (Australian bowler)
Adam Zampa tied Muttiah Muralitharan for the most wickets taken by a spinner in the Men’s Cricket World Cup. Zampa is Australia’s top wicket-taker in the competition.
During the league stage, he claimed three straight four-wicket hauls, including a noteworthy 4/8 against the Netherlands. His 23 wickets came at an average of 22.39. The Australian leg spinner’s total number of wickets in the competition was surpassed only by Mohammed Shami.
Zampa’s innings of 29 against England also proved to be crucial in the game, granting Australia command over their advancement to the semi-finals.
#: Mohammed Shami (Indian bowler)
Tournament top wicket-taker Mohammed Shami was exceptional for a team he was not even a part of at the start of the campaign.
Shami remained out of his team’s first four matches, but after that he performed amazingly and took 24 wickets at an average of just 10.70 and 5.26.
Only four players in the history of the men’s game have taken more than Shami’s 55 Cricket World Cup wickets – Lasith Malinga (56), Mitchell Starc (65), Muttiah Muralitharan (68) and Glenn McGrath (71) – Shami returns ten Low matches any player above you on the list.
#: Gerald Coetzee (South Africa bowler)
South Africa needed a spark to ignite their offence in Anrich Nortje’s absence, and they found it in the youthful Gerald Coetzee. Throughout the tournament, he bowled with pace and danger, taking 20 wickets in his eight appearances. With an economy of 6.23 and an average of 19.80, the 23-year-old placed first.
