ICC World Cup 2019 statistical round-up after tournament: England cricketers dominate charts

England after winning 2019 World Cup

England lifted their first World Cup after somehow scraping past New Zealand by the narrowest possible margin in the most intense of finals. As for the statistics, they feature in almost every chart, including most runs and wickets.

Interestingly, the top five in batting averages do not include Englishmen. Three low-scoring knockout matches led to both Williamson and Rohit dropping below Shakib.

Rohit SharmaIndia64881.0098.3
David WarnerAustralia64771.8889.4

Maxwell finished at the top of the strike rates chart, but both Buttler and Roy made their way into the top four.

Morgan’s 17 sixes against Afghanistan kept him at top spot despite the fact that he managed only 5 more throughout the rest of the World Cup. Roy rose to fifth place.
