Who has scored the most runs in all World Cup matches so far?
Five men have so far scored more than 1000 runs solely in World Cup matches. Mark Waugh made 1004 runs, Viv Richards 1013, Aravinda de Silva 1064, and Javed Miandad - the only man to play in six different tournaments - 1083. But way clear at the top of the list is Sachin Tendulkar, who has so far scored 1732 runs in the World Cup, at the healthy average of 59.72, with four centuries. Ricky Ponting, who currently has 998 runs, and Brian Lara (956) are likely to sail past four figures during next year's World Cup.
