ICC Cricket ODI World Cup 2019 Top Runs Scorers

ICC Cricket ODI World Cup 2019 Top Runs Scorers were from India, Australia, Bangladesh, New Zealand and England. Apart from Bangladesh all of the mentioned teams qualified for the top-fours.

The 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup has seen the most runs scored by Indian vice-captain Rohit Sharma, who has five hundreds to his credit. David Warner, an Australian opener, comes in second place, just one run behind Warner. Below is the list of top run scorers. 

Rohit Sharma (Indian)

The vice-captain and opening batter for India has dominated his team’s season. The 32-year-old Rohit is the first World Cup player to record five hundred in a single tournament.

With six total World Cup hundreds, the century against Sri Lanka at Headingley has put him on par with Sachin Tendulkar.

He beat Tendulkar’s record of completing the same in 40 innings, again against Australia, by scoring 2000 runs in the match against Australia in the shortest time (37 innings).

Warner (Australia)

10 games, 10 innings, 647 runs, 3 centuries, and 3 half-centuries were played.  The Australian opener has continued to play tough hits despite hearing boos from the English spectators.

He and captain Aaron Finch have worked well together to hold off the opposition’s bowlers. Warner also scored the highest total in a single World Cup match (166 off 147 balls against Bangladesh).

Shakib Al Hasan (Bangladesh)

Shakib, 32, put on a masterful performance after struggling at the beginning of 2018 as a result of many finger ailments. Following an injury sustained during the Bangladesh Premier League final, he also missed the New Zealand series.

The former captain of Bangladesh finished the tournament with 606 runs, breaking Sachin Tendulkar’s mark for the most runs scored during group play (586 runs in the 2003 World Cup).

He made history by becoming the first player to win 10 wickets and amass 500 runs in a single World Cup campaign.

Kane Williamson (New Zealand)

10 games, 9 innings, 578 runs, and 2 centuries were played.  Despite his team’s inconsistent season, the New Zealand captain has maintained composure.

Only Hashim Amla and Virat Kohli have amassed 6,000 ODI runs in fewer innings than Williamson did in the match against Australia (139 innings).

After Australian Ricky Ponting (from 2003 to 2007) and Zimbabwean Brendan Taylor (in 2015), he is the third World Cup skipper to score back-to-back centuries. Williamson currently matches his ODI century rate in New Zealand (4 in 71 innings) in England (4 in 14 knocks).

Joe Root (England)

11 games, 11 innings, 556 runs, 2 centuries, and 3 half-centuries were played. In the shorter format, England’s Test skipper has demonstrated his ability to shift gears.

In this round, he has four scores of fifty or more, including centuries against Pakistan and the West Indies. As the only English player to reach 500 runs in World Cups, he also entered the record books.
