Here’s another rather unusual one. The man of the series for the 1992 Cup was decided even before the first semi-final was played. New Zealand's Martin Crowe was named World Cup Champion Player for scoring 456 runs in nine matches at an average of 114. It didn’t however, help his team’s cause.

Unfailing belief in his team's ability brought ignominy to the 25 year old Kamachi during the 1999 World Cup.
