Highest and Lowest team scores in all cricket World Cups.
One of the best things with cricket world cup's is that we get to see our cricket teams against diverse oppositions but, sometimes, it gets really boring when your team is scheduled to play one of the minnows like Kenya or Zimbabwe, Netherlands, Canada and others..
2011 cricket world cup has a total of 14 teams participating, and matches against smaller teams are not supposed to be watchable - unless an upset occurs or someone makes the fastest century in one day Internationals.
Another possibility is making one of the highest score in ODI Cricket World Cups, which currently belongs to India who made 413 against minnows Bermuda in last world cup on 19th March 2007. That day, Virendra Sehwag made 114 off 87 balls with 17 fours and 3 sixes, Yuvraj Singh 83 off 46 and Sachin Tendulkar 57 off 29 balls, batting at number 6!
