Most Successful Team of ODI Cricket World Cup History

Australia is most successful team of ODI format. Australia won 5 titles most by any team in World Cups. In 1987, 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2015 Australia finished World Cup as champions.

Most Runs in ODI World Cup Career

Sachin Tendulkar holds the record for most runs in ODI World Cup all time history. He has scored 2,278 runs in 44 innings with average of 56.95 in his World Cup career. His highest score is 152 against Namibia in 2003 World Cup. He scored total 673 runs in that World Cup. He scored 18,426 ODI and 15,921 Test runs in his career. He represented India for almost 24 years.

Most Wickets in ODI World Cup Career

Glenn McGrath from Australia holds the record for most wickets in ODI Cricket World Cup career. He has taken 71 wickets with economy of 3.97 in his World Cup career. His best figure in World Cup is 7/15 against Namibia. He took 563 test wickets and 381 ODI wickets in his career. He represented Australia for 14 years. He is considered as most accurate bowler in cricket.


Mostly pitches in India are batting friendly which means we will see high scoring matches in World Cup. Although there are some pitches which supports fast bowlers to take wickets. India is favorites for World Cup 2023 as it will be at their home grounds. No doubt India also contains some really technically great players in their squad. Australia is second favorites for World Cup because they look completely different in World Cup. We can call them experts of ODI cricket. New Zealand was unlucky in their last two ODI World Cups as they finished as runner-ups. This time they have golden opportunity to win their first World Cup. England has many hard hitter batters in their squad. They are ready to give tough time to opponents.

Pakistan is another danger for teams. They are known as unpredictable. They can beat any team on their day. Pakistan has many fast bowlers who can bowl at 150kmph. Pakistan’s pacers will give tough time to batters obviously. Bangladesh and Afghanistan also can beat any team at day. Bangladesh has some of the best bowlers and batters in their squad. Afghanistan spinners are ready to spin the ball. Afghanistan spinners are known for their mystery deliveries.
