Best/ Top Batsmen in World Cup Cricket
The best batsmen in World Cup list shows some great names in cricket. These are the players who changed the perception of consistent performance among cricket fans and critics. A player like Sachin Tendulkar who scored tons in World Cup, he clearly took India to the victory stands many times in the World Cup. While Javed Miandad was the clear difference between Pakistan and England in the 1992 World Cup, he was definitely the one who took Pakistan to the victory stand in the final. Another important member of the best batsman in World Cup list is Ricky Ponting. This guy, with his consistent performance and excellent captaincy, took Australia three times to the World Cup victory stand.

Another distinguished player in this best batsman list is Matthew Hayden, a former Australian opener who scored a lot of runs and was famous for his unleashed strokes, he literally deserves these statistics.

Best Batsmen in World Cup Cricket by Nation
“Batting is the art of building your innings and scoring runs for your team,” said one of the best batsman among these World Cup performers: Javed Miandad. Later on, players like Sachin and Ricky Ponting changed the rules with their batting styles; both of them used to attack the opposition right in the beginning of their innings and, after putting pressure on the opposition, they built their innings. In contrast, former Pakistani captain Javed Miandad used to build his innings first and also attack occasionally. The most unique of this best batsman list was the great Lara who was a combination of both these attributes.
