Trivia of CWC 2015

Have a look at the fun stats and trivia of ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 where fourteen teams are competing for the highest glory of one-day cricket

Trivia of March 4

Misbah-ul-Haq, at 40, and Tauqir Ahmed, at 43, are the oldest captains in the tournament. UAE have only played Pakistan twice before, in 1994 and 1996. Both were nine-wicket wins for Pakistan. Shahid Afridi is two away from 8000 ODI runs. Assuming he gets to the mark in the next ODI, his batting average around 23.52 will be comfortably the lowest for any batsman to have hit the 8000 mark. His strike rate of around 116, however, will easily be the highest.


Australia have won their previous two matches at Eden Park, back in 2010, but in 2005 they lost a high-scoring encounter when New Zealand chased down 337 with eight balls to spare. Taylor made 117, which remains his highest score against Australia, and McCullum hit the winning runs.
