World Cup is the biggest prize cricket has to offer and every player dreams of getting their hands. Some with hard work, others with patience and a few with sheer luck!
There have been players in the cricketing history who have got their hands on the coveted trophy without playing a match.
We have a look at five players who won the World Cup without playing a match.
Tom Curran, born in Cape Town, won a World Cup with England in 2019 without playing a match. Curran, the bowling all-rounder, made his debut for England in 2017 against the West Indies. He came into the spotlight after his brilliant performance against Australia in a ODI series. Later, banking on his performance, he was picked up for England’s World Cup 2019 squad.
