The Top Run-Scorers In World Cup History: Charismatic Players


The 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup was already going on, and it was one of the most exciting tournaments in the event’s history. On May 30, England and Wales hosted the first game of the 12th World Cup, which was between England and South Africa. In the past few years, English tracks have been flat and haven’t given bowlers much help. Scores of 350 or more have been common in games in recent years. Also, the teams trying to catch them have done well.

According to icc world cup news, Sachin Tendulkar, an Indian player who retired in 2013, holds the record for the most runs ever scored in the 2019 Cricket World Cup. He is the best batter who is expected to play in the 2019 World Cup. Chris Gayle is in 22nd place with 944 runs, so this is likely his last World Cup.
