ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 started on a dull note. The initial matches were dirt in the rain, and some teams such as Sri Lanka expressed objection to this matter. But as such, the World Cup got its momentum and the audience sitting in the stadium also got an opportunity to be thrilled.
A lot happened in the final stages of the tournament. the team that usually wins World Cups, succumbed against the mighty English. India, under skipper Virat Kohli, also collapsed in the semi-final against New Zealand.
In this World Cup, many players won the hearts of the audience, here we are going to talk about them:
India skipper Virat Kohli, vice-captain and highest scorer of the tournament Rohit Sharma, world’s number one bowler Jasprit Bumrah along with all-rounder Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja, all were played an outstanding role in ICC world cup 2019.
India’s opener Rohit Sharma was impressive with his captain Virat Kohli in the World Cup while staying at the top of the ICC ODI batting chart. He scored 648 runs in nine matches with the Batting average of 81. Five hundred and one half-centuries. A tremendous job is done by him, Kohli said, Rohit is one of the best batsmen in limited-overs cricket. Rohit Sharma became only the 1st batsman to score 5 hundreds in a single edition of the World Cup
Shakib Al Hasan
Best all-rounder at No 3 at this World Cup was Bangladesh maestro Shakib Al Hasan. He managed to score 606 runs at an average of 86.57 while striking at 96.03. He also picked up 11 wickets at 36.27 with an economy rate of well under 5.5, becoming the first player in the history of the tournament to score more than 500 runs and take 10 wickets in a single edition of the tournament.
Kane has impressed the most, he is now the fourth-highest run-getter in this World Cup with 578 runs from 10 innings with two hundreds and two fifties. Williamson became the first captain with the most number of runs in a single World Cup, breaking the record of former Sri Lanka skipper Mahela Jayawardene who had amassed 548 runs in the 2007 edition.
England’s World Cup hero Ben Stokes is likely to be honoured with a knighthood for his sensational performance in the summit clash against New Zealand, which helped the hosts win the title at ICC World Cup. Stokes smashed an unbeaten 84 off 98 balls to help England tie the final match at the Lord’s. The Man of the Match in the final of the World Cup. 465 runs at an average of 66.42.
