    I'm sure it happens but not more often than the bounds of statistical uncertainty. Precisely why only world cups matter is moot. Good players do well, bad players to badly. Rarely would you see Venkaypathy Raju becoming world beater in world cup and Akram struggling because it's world cup.

    I know you are not saying anything contrary to that. Just taking off from your question.
    RIP Phil Hughes. Forever 63*

    Yeah I meant weird cases like Bichel because of a small sample size. We have examples of the opposite like Inzamam (I think, I remember him having a really poor run in one of the World Cups).

    Bichel was quality, one of the best bowlers in the best era of Sheffield Shield cricket. Him and Kasprowicz would have to be the greatest new ball partnership in Shield history

    Statistically I'm pretty sure they are the most successful Shield new ball partnership

    Hmm. On the other hand Inzamam played a big hand in Pakistan's 92 triumph.

    Rahul Dravid has better record in WC than Tendulkar . Sample size is small however.

    Geoff Allott was the leading wicket-taker in the 99 World Cup. Not sure on the rest of his career figures but it does seem like a well timed one-hit wonder.

    EDIT: Overall record was 52 wickets @ 23.21, without the 99 WC it was 32 wickets @ 27.56 (though his ER was a concerning 5.28). So not a massive discrepency, but still somewhat significant.
