1975: 171no against East Africa
It was all sort of new at the first World Cup in England in 1975. East Africa was made up of a few rank amateurs from the likes of Uganda and Kenya. Derek Pringle's dad was in the team. Turner guided New Zealand past the 300 mark in 60 overs and the New Zealanders got off to a great start in the tournament.
1981: 102no against Australia
This innings gets forgotten in the game in which the underarm incident occurred. Edgar was a rock right through in what was a very hot day in Melbourne. Was composed enough to give the two-finger salute to Chappell when the Australian did his dastardly deed.
1983: 66 against Australia
This was a hastily arranged match in Sydney to aid bushfire victims. Crowe was just 20 and was green but he managed to knock up 66 which was nearly half the side's total. Was the first of many great knocks for his country. And it was good enough to beat the Aussies that night.
1992: 100no against Australia
A key game in the World Cup between the two host teams. Crowe timed his run to perfection and guided his side to a great victory.
1996: 130no against Australia
In a World Cup quarterfinal against Australia, Harris came to the wicket with his side at 44 for three. He hit 76 runs in boundaries and guided New Zealand to 286 for nine wickets. But his side still lost.
2000: 110no against India
Still the only silverware New Zealand has won in an ICC tournament. Cairns scored a ton in the knockout cup final after batting at No5 and New Zealand got home with two balls to spare.
2003: 134no against South Africa
Fleming had plenty of critics but he silenced them with this knock which knocked the host out of the World Cup.
2007: 117 against Australia.
McMillan walked to the wicket with his side 41 for four. He hit 117 at better than a run a ball to help set up victory and a clean sweep in the Chappell-Hadlee series.
2015: 77 against England
The English had flopped with the bat in the World Cup game in Wellington. McCullum came out and went mad. The 50-run opening partnership came up in the fourth over, the 100-run partnership in the seventh over. McCullum hit 94% of his runs in boundaries.
2015: 84no against South Africa
The stage does not get much bigger than a World Cup semifinal. Cometh the hour, cometh the man - Elliott on fire.
2018: 181no against England
Enough said. Simply superb.
