To me the best all-rounders to have played in world cups include Kapil Dev,Imran Khan,Ian Botham,Richard Hadlee,Chris Cairns,Shaun Pollock,Jacques Kallis and Gray Gilmour.In this list I am ranking in order of merit the best all-round performance in a world cup.

My ranking in order of merit of best performance by an all-rounder in a world cup.

1. Yuvraj Singh -2011

2.Lance Kluesner-1999

3.Kapil Dev -1983

4.Steve Waugh-1987

5.Asif Iqbal -1979

6.Imran Khan -1987

7.Mohinder Amarnath-1983

Yuvraj was a revelation in 2011 lifting India from dire straits with bat and ball doing justice to 'cometh,the hour,cometh the man.Rated at no 1 because he won India the title with spectacular performances in the knockout stages.Although not statistically as Impressive as Lance Kluesener he scored runs and captured wickets in more crucial stages.-,thus making his intervention morally more impactful.

Statistically no doubt the champion of all world cup all-rounders and would have been at the very top if the Proteas had won the 199 world cup.No doubt Lance Kluesner was the more spectacular hitter than Youvraj on a consistent basis and had better statistics but it was more his giving shape to the innings at the end at the death.

Gave Kapil Dev such a high rating because he also played a role as a skipper and above all won the world cup for India.His unbeaten 175 literally resurrected India from the grave He also captured wickets at crucial junctures.

Steve Waugh in 1987 with both bat and ball played with perfect tune to the situation and his performance had a lot top do with Australia's eventual triumph including some breath-taking escapes against India and New Zealand.

Imran Khan was at his best with the ball but also showed great responsibility with the bat in the semi-final v Australia and in a league match versus West Indies.

In 1979 Asif Iqbal as a skipper came very close to taking Pakistan to the final with some top class innings with the bat and crucial wickets.

Mohinder Amarnath's all-round efforts won India the 1983 semi-final and final.

Has to be majid khan for the best allorunder in WCs. he batted like trumper, bradman and vivan richards rolled into one and bowled like larwood, lillee and proctor. his fielding was better than colin bland, jonty rhodes and ABDV. and it is said that his looks made the gods nervous wrecks. the reason he did not play more matches is because this radiant demigod instigated jealousy in his own team mates and family (incl. imran).
