India only team to win 60 and 50 overs title
If one remembers, ODIs used to have a 60-over inning initially, before being switched to 50 in 1987.
While India won the World Cup in 1983, which was the 60-over format, their win in 2011 was in the 50-over format.
This made them the first and only team to do so.
The initial two editions, prior to 1983, were won by West Indies.
Kapil Dev: Youngest captain to win World Cup
The World Cup 1983 win for India scripted several records, which are yet to be broken.
One of the unique records that it produced belongs to the winning captain Kapil Dev.
At that time of the title, Kapil was just 24 years, 5 months and 19 days old, thus making him the youngest captain to win the World Cup to date.
Kumar Sangakkara has scored four consecutive centuries
Sri Lanka have been only one-time lucky to win the World Cup, in 1996.
However, that edition did not feature their legendary player Kumar Sangakkara, who produced a special record in the 2015 edition.
He became the first batsman to score four consecutive centuries in a World Cup, but Lanka failed to capitalize on his form and were knocked out in quarters.
Lasith Malinga has double hat-trick
Hat-trick is a rare phenomenon in the World Cup. However, Sri Lanka's fast bowler Lasith Malinga has an unusual love for them.
He claimed his first hat-trick of the tournament in 2007 against South Africa, followed it up against Kenya in the 2011 edition, thus making him the only one to do so.
He has a chance to make it three, come this edition.
Australia's unbeaten streak
Australia, being the most successful country to date, have this astonishing record of the longest unbeaten streak in the tournament.
It started in 1999, with a win against Bangladesh, and ended in 2011 with a loss to Pakistan in the group stage.
With an unbeaten streak of 34 matches, it would certainly be a monumental task for any team to repeat the feat.
