    I do love that Australia and new zealand are both considered the favourites and yet the only batsman in the top 20 from those countries is Warner.

    Meanwhile they are dominating the top wicket takers list. Though for australia it's mostly starc while it's a team effort from new zealand.

    Shows how important bowling still is.

    Or as in NZ's case that they've chased a number of low scores.

    I'm pretty sure Klusener got MOTS in '99, so it doesn't necessarily have to be someone from a team that wins or makes the final - but obviously it's more likely.

    Yeah. Remember reading in the news at that time that while the rest of the Indian squad returned home, Dravid stayed back at England just in case he was given the MotS award. Went to Klusener.

    If (big if) NZ wins the WC I reckon Corey Anderson could be a dark horse - key player for NZ

    No it wasn't. Don't know about 96 but definitely wasn't in 99.

    starc, maxwell, boult, southee,shami all in contention, if they provide tournament winning performances as they've been matchwinners in group stages.

    Think it was in 2003 when they had some kind of a points system and Sachin basically had an unbeatable lead going into the finals..
