Best catches from the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup: Several incredible catches were seen during the recently finished event.
With the ICC Cricket World Cup officially completed, the majority of attention is focused on the tournament’s top run-scorers and wicket-takers. Finishing first in a Cricket World Cup is no easy feat, given the nature of the competition.
When it comes to this World Cup, three batsmen have reached the 600-run milestone. Only two batsmen in World Cup history (Sachin Tendulkar and Rohit Sharma) had previously accomplished the feat.
Mitchell Starc, an Australian fast bowler, broke the record for most wickets in a World Cup held by former Australia captain Glenn McGrath. In terms of all-rounders, Shakib Al Hasan of Bangladesh became the first all-rounder to score 500 runs and dismiss 10 batsmen in a single World Cup.
In the midst of all of these incredible exploits, spectators often overlook the fielding performances. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to state that fielding is one of the most entertaining aspects of the game, since nothing compares to the thrill of a teammate clinching a game-winning hit in a stressful battle.
When it comes to wicket-keepers, Tom Latham of New Zealand came out on top with 21 dismissals in the competition. Alex Carey (20), an Australian wicket-keeper batsman, was the World Cup’s second-best wicket-keeper.
While Latham (21) was responsible for all of his catches, veteran India wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni (3) was responsible for the most stumping dismissals in the tournament.
England batsman Joe Root (13) has taken the most catches among fielders in this World Cup. South Africa captain Faf du Plessis (10) and England opening batter Jonny Bairstow (9) are the next best on the list (9).
South Africa’s crucial match against the West Indies was called off without a ball being bowled yesterday, while Bangladesh’s match against Sri Lanka was also called off without a ball being bowled.
Thankfully, we’ve already been treated to some thrilling action, with England, India, and Australia all flexing their muscles.
England rebounded from a shock loss to Pakistan with a thrashing of Afghanistan, while India has defeated both Australia and South Africa to establish themselves as genuine contenders.
The West Indies’ ruthless dedication to fierce, short-pitched bowling has surprised many, and the Caribbean team is a strong contender to be the tournament’s dark horse.

Unfortunately, after the last two days, the competition may be at risk of losing steam, and organizers will be praying for some of that renowned British sunshine over the next several days.
For the time being, we’ll have to settle for reliving some of the most exciting moments from the series thus far.
By preparing a film of the five best catches in the tournament thus far, the ICC has gone a long way to assisting with this.
