Ravindra has so far scored 565 runs in nine innings of nine matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023, while two more possible matches (semi-finals-finals) are left. We are telling about the batsmen who scored the most runs while playing for the first time in the ODI World Cup.
Team India's current head coach and former Indian captain Rahul Dravid scored 461 runs in the 1999 World Cup, which included centuries against Sri Lanka and Kenya.
England all-rounder Ben Stokes scored 465 runs in 11 matches at an average of 66.42 in the 2019 World Cup, which included five half-centuries.
Pakistan captain Babar Azam made his World Cup debut in 2019 and scored 474 runs in eight matches at an average of 67.71, which included one century and three half-centuries.

Rachin has impressed everyone with his batting in this World Cup. He has shown maturity in his batting. Rachin can bat slower when needed and is adept at changing gears with time. 23-year-old Ravindra is 108 runs behind Sachin Tendulkar's record of scoring most runs by a batsman in a single World Cup. Sachin had scored 673 runs in the 2003 World Cup.
