Cricket World Cup 2015 Updates

Leave a comment

So, as the cricket world cup progresses this page will be updated with the results from all the 49 matches. I will give you the line ups for every match as well as their scores / bowling performance. The † symbol means they are the wicket-keeper, the c means captain. The first score in bold is runs scored, the second (where applicable) is wickets taken for runs conceded. If a player didn’t bat, the only notation in bold will be their bowling figures. A * means batter was not out. The team totals won’t be the same as the sum of the individual scores, the remaining runs will be down to extras.
