The World Cup 2023 Team of the Tournament was unveiled by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Monday, and it was determined by a selection panel comprising Ian Bishop, Kass Naidoo, Shane Watson, Wasim Khan, and Sunil Vaidya. The team selection was based on outstanding performances throughout the tournament.
The lineup featured players from various teams, including champions Australia, runners-up India, South Africa, New Zealand, and Sri Lanka. Notable players included Quinton de Kock from South Africa, whose breathtaking form included scoring four centuries during the group stage, including a massive 174 against Bangladesh at the Wankhede Stadium.
Rohit Sharma, the captain and opener for India, played a pivotal role at the top of the order, accumulating 597 runs. Virat Kohli, also from India, set an all-time record by scoring the most runs ever by an individual batter in a Men's Cricket World Cup, amassing 765 runs at an impressive average of 96.62.
Daryl Mitchell from New Zealand contributed significantly to his team's run to the semi-finals with 552 runs at an average of 69 and a strike rate of 111.06. KL Rahul, another Indian batsman, showcased consistency throughout the tournament, accumulating 452 runs from 10 innings.
Australia's Glenn Maxwell provided standout moments with the bat, achieving the fastest century ever seen at a Men’s Cricket World Cup, taking only 40 balls. Ravindra Jadeja, India's spin-bowling all-rounder, played a crucial role by taking key wickets and maintaining pressure during the middle overs.
Jasprit Bumrah, the leader of India’s bowling attack, displayed relentless excellence. Dilshan Madushanka, Sri Lanka’s left-arm speedster, was a revelation, securing 21 wickets and consistently posing a threat with the new ball.
Adam Zampa from Australia equaled Muttiah Muralidaran's record for most wickets by a spinner in a single Men’s Cricket World Cup. Mohammed Shami, India's top wicket-taker in the tournament, delivered an extraordinary performance despite not being part of the team at the start of the campaign.
