    Single world cup? or overall at world cups?

    At a single world cup, I think it still might be the great man Geoff Allott of NZ, who was on fire in '99

    Akram has the most world cup wickets total, and most in a single wc is... Vaas of SL with 23, Lee 22, Mcgrath 21 (all 2003) and Allott and Warne with 20 in 4th place

    Well, i was close, least i stuck my neck out..
