The economy rates of a bowler is the number of runs they concede per over. It is calculated by dividing the number of runs conceded by the number of overs bowled. A lower economy rate is better, as it means that the bowler is conceding fewer runs per over.
The best economy rate in ICC Cricket World Cup history is 2.67, set by Mohammad Yousuf of Pakistan in the 2003 World Cup. Yousuf bowled 24 overs in the tournament and conceded only 65 runs, for an economy rate of 2.67.
It is important to note that the economy rate of a bowler can be affected by a number of factors, such as the pitch conditions and the quality of the opposition. However, the bowlers on this list have all managed to maintain very low economy rates in the World Cup, which is a testament to their skill and consistency.
