Debuts
The tournament had 31 debutants and none of them were from the Test nations. Netherlands and Kenya had 13 debutants each while UAE had five.
Netherlands' Nolan Clarke made history by becoming the oldest ODI debutant at 47, while his team-mate Bas Zuiderent, who was 18 at the time, scored a half-century against England.
The notable debutants for Kenya during the World Cup were Steve Tikolo, Maurice Odumbe, Thomas Odoyo and Kennedy Otieno. Tikolo top-scored with 65, while Odumbe took 3 for 15 in 10 overs in Kenya's famous win against West Indies.
Farewells
Richie Richardson ended his West Indies career unbeaten at one end while his team-mates collapsed spectacularly at the other in the semi-final against Australia. His best performance was 93 not out in the league victory against Australia, and he scored 236 at an average of 59 in the tournament.
Javed Miandad exited the international stage as the only man to have played in the first six World Cups. At nearly 39, Miandad wasn't successful in 1996: he didn't bat in his first two games and scored 54 in the next three. He was run out for 38 in the quarter-final defeat against the old enemy - India.
Manoj Prabhakar, the India medium-pacer, was reduced to bowling offspin in front of his home crowd by the Sri Lankan openers, who plundered 47 runs off his four overs in Delhi. He was dropped for India's next game and retired immediately, having taken three wickets and scored 11 runs in the tournament.
Craig McDermott bowled only three overs in Australia's first game of the tournament against Kenya, after the forfeit to Sri Lanka, before a calf injury forced him to return home. He never played an international again.
Robin Smith played only two games for England in the tournament. He made 75 in the final league match against Pakistan, sharing a 147-run opening stand with Atherton, and 25 in the quarter-final defeat to Sri Lanka. He was not selected for England again.
Duds
Nathan Astle began with a match-winning 101 in the tournament opener against England. His form crashed thereafter and he made 0, 1, 2, 6, 1 in his next five innings to end the tournament with an average of 18.50.
Andy Flower did not get past single digits in his first five innings and his best was 28 against India. He scored 51 runs at an average of 10.20.
Alec Stewart opened for England in his first three innings and dropped down for his last two but had little success. He made only 86 in five matches.
Mike Atherton, England's captain, also moved up and down the batting order with little success. He scored a fifty in the defeat to Pakistan but made only 119 in six innings.
Wasim Akram failed to make an impact as bowler and captain: he took three wickets in four innings. An injury forced him to watch Pakistan lose the quarter-final to India from the sidelines.
