Sri Lankan batting great Aravinda de Silva, who played for Sri Lanka in five World Cups from 1987 to 2003 is placed at tenth in the list of top 10 run-getters in the World Cups. He has scored a total of 1064 runs in the 32 innings he played in the World Cups. Out of these 32 innings, the best knock from his bat came in the finals of the 1996 World Cup in which he remained unbeaten on 107 and led Sri Lanka home by 7 wickets which helped them lift the trophy.

9. Herschelle Gibbs

Unlike de Silva, Gibbs played only three World Cups for South Africa and has scored 1067 runs in 23 innings at an average of 56.15. He is also the only batsman to have scored six sixes in an over ODIs and he achieved this feat against the Netherlands in the 2007 World Cup. His unbeaten 143 against New Zealand at Johannesburg is one of the better knocks played by him in the World Cups.
