Cricket-World-Cup-2015

Cricket World Cup is always been an inspiration for everyone around the world. It happens in every four years to decide which team holds the title of ‘Champions’ in the world. The 2015 Cricket World Cup which was hosted in New Zealand and Australia, we have seen many of the dangerous players with the bats who struggled really hard to smash the ball towards the boundaries as much as they can and even the bowlers were on fire to take out set-on-crease batsmen with their bowling spells. It really was a inspiring tournament or you can say ‘jaw-dropping’ when dangerous players worked in their own way and techniques to defeat the opposition or put them under deep pressure. Let’s take a look at Highest Run Scorers and Top Wicket Takers of World Cup 2015 who surely deserved appreciation for their blasting performances.
