The pressure of a World Cup game is a level above other cricket matches. Despite all this, some players outperform all their levels. Sometimes a single player can lead his team to victory. Many times it’s happened that a cricketer has single-handedly rescued his or her team from a difficult situation and won the match.
To award the singular most valuable performance by a player, the ICC decided to create the Player of the Tournament award (also called Player of the Series) in the World Cup in 1992. Since then, 8 players have been the recipient of this award. Today, we take a look at the entire list of players of the tournament winners in the ICC World Cup from 1992 to 2023.
