World Cup: Not Viru, Rohit or Yuvi, Kapil Dev is India’s most ‘broken’ batsman, know top-6 players


To install World Cup. The date of ICC World Cup 2023 (World Cup-2023) is getting closer. The fever of cricket is increasing on the fans. The World Cup will be organized in India only in October-November this year. The Indian team has been the World Cup champion in 1983 under the captaincy of Kapil Dev and in 2011 under the captaincy of MS Dhoni. Talking about India’s most ‘dangerous’ batter (highest strike rate) in the World Cup, this achievement is in the name of great all-rounder Kapil Dev. Batters like Sehwag, Yuvraj, Rohit, Tendulkar and Dhoni are far behind Kapil in this matter. Kapil has scored 669 runs in 28 World Cup matches at an average of 115.14. In the strike rate, only Brendon McCullum of New Zealand and AB de Villiers of South Africa are above Kapil. McCullum is first in this list with a strike rate of 120.84 and AB is second with a strike rate of 117.29. It should also be noted that McCullum and de Villiers ‘entered’ cricket many years after Kapil’s era, till then cricket had taken a very aggressive form. Only batsmen who have faced at least 500 balls in the World Cup are included in the list.
