The team captains for the cup.

The following is a list of all the major statistics and records for the 2007 Cricket World Cup held in the West Indies from 13 March to 28 April 2007. Though India were eliminated early, they set the ODI record for the highest victory margin in their 257 run win over Bermuda.[1] In their match against Netherlands, Herschelle Gibbs (South Africa) created ODI and International cricket record when he hit sixes off all six deliveries in Daan van Bunge's over.[2] In the Super 8 stage games, Lasith Malinga (Sri Lanka) created ODI record when he took four wickets in four consecutive deliveries in a losing effort against South Africa.[3] By the end of the tournament, new World Cup records for the fastest fifty (20 balls – Brendon McCullum of New Zealand)[4] and fastest hundred (66 balls – Matthew Hayden of Australia)[5] were established. Glenn McGrath established a new Cricket World Cup record for the most number of wickets (26) and also finished his ODI career with the most number of wickets in World Cup history (71).[6] The number of sixes in the overall tournament (373) was 40% higher than the previous record holder, the 2003 Cricket World Cup (266).[7] The tournament also saw 32 century partnerships (previous record of 28 during the 1996 Cricket World Cup)[8] and 10 batsmen over 400 runs (previous record of 4 during the 2003 Cricket World Cup).[9]
