World Cup History: India Lost Least Matches, Behind Aussies

They are the only team whose two players have won Player of the Series award in World Cup editions and their player provided only the third instance (After Aravinda de Silva in 1996 and Lance Klusener in 1999) of winning four Player of the Match awards in a single edition (Yuvraj Singh in 2011).
