Cricket World Cup is a very important tournament for all Test playing teams of Cricket world. Performing well in a World Cup tournament is a dream of every Cricket player. 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup was the 10th Edition of this tournament. In the 2011 cricket world cup, there were many performers who truly made their mark in the tournament. The most important performances came from the likes of Jac Kallis, Yuvraj Singh, Shahid Afridi and Umar Akmal. Shahid Afridi was the best performing captain in the world cup. This can be said with confidence as he was able to lead a team who had recently faced match fixing probes and was contesting in absence of the leading fast bowler duo of the national side. Despite the handicaps, Shahid Afridi performed very well himself, and made his team a difficult target for every opponent.
