During the 1996 World Cup, he scored four centuries, which made him the first Australian, to score four centuries and more than 1,000 runs in a World Cup tournament. Throughout his career, Waugh played 372 international matches and scored 38 centuries and 97 half-centuries. In 1998 he was charged with being involved in the 1994 match-fixing case.
