Records/Statistics of ICC Cricket World Cup 2007

May 2nd, 2007

There were plenty of records and milestones over the 47 days of ICC Cricket World Cup 2007. For detail statistics, Check the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 Statistics page.

Let me go through few of them.

Herschelle Gibbs became the first batsman to hit six sixes in an over in one-day internationals, when he took apart legspinner Daan van Bunge in the match between South Africa and the Netherlands.

Mathew Hayden and Adam Gilchrist became the first opening pair to put together 1000 runs in World Cup matches

Mathew Hayden created the record for most number of boundaries in a single World Cup. He struck 87 boundaries (69 fours and 18 sixes), beating Tendulkar’s record of 79 (75 fours and four sixes). Hayden’s 18 sixes is also a record in a single edition, going past Ganguly’s 15 in 2003.

Lasith Malinga became the first bowler to take four wickets in four balls in the history of one-day internationals. Malinga’s hat-trick was the fifth such instance in World Cups – Chetan Sharma, Saqlain Mushtaq, Chaminda Vaas and Bret Lee are the others who have taken a World Cup hat-trick.

Dwayne Leverock’s figures of 1 for 96 against India were the most expensive in this World Cup, in terms of runs conceded. He became the fourth bowler to concede more than 90 runs in World Cup matches, after Martin Snedden, Asantha de Mel and Rudi van Vuuren.

India’s 413 for 5 against Bermuda is the highest total ever posted by a team in World Cups, going past Sri Lanka’s earlier record of 398 for 5 against Kenya at Kandy in 1996. In all there were 16 instances of 300-plus totals in the tournament.

India’s 257-run win against Bermuda is the biggest victory margin in World Cup, beating by one run the previous record when Australia beat Namibia in 2003. In all there were six wins by margins of more than 200 runs in this World Cup, a measure of how one-sided some of the games were. In eight previous World Cups, only 16 wins had been achieved by a 200-plus margin.
