Australia stands as the most successful team in the history of the Men’s World Cup, having secured the title 5 times.
Sachin Tendulkar, known as the “God of Cricket,” holds the record for the highest number of runs scored in ODI World Cup history, while Australia’s Glenn McGrath claims the record for the most wickets taken.
