The top three players in the Most Valuable Player list of the 2019 World Cup are Rohit Sharma (MVPI: 767), Shakib Al Hasan (746) and Ben Stokes (725).

The most impactful in terms of actually winning the World Cup was Ben Stokes; when he was playing that final, he seemed to be in a completely different zone.

After the 2015 World Cup, that contained a large number of insignificant matches, the 2019 version seems better.

The semi-final line-up was decided at the very end of the league stage, and the top 60 contains players from every country.
