Vids: Runs and wickets galore
The World Cup is nearing its 30th fixture, and there have been more than 20 centuries scored so far, with the runs flowing all around Australia and New Zealand, but there have also been some superb bowling efforts.
Obviously, there are a few highlights you'd expect to see, like Chris Gayle's 215 against Zimbabwe, or Kumar Sangakkara's two tons in two games, but for some reason the ICC have removed or block them, but left a few others.
Here are the findable ones on Youtube, with varying quality, admittedly. Enjoy!
New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum took England's bowlers apart, especially Steve Finn, and hit the fastest World Cup half century to date, off 18 balls. He went on to make 77 before departing, and the Kiwis won convincingly.
AB's 162 not out
South Africa skipper AB de Villiers had a rollicking time against the West Indies' death bowlers, and smashed 75 runs off the last three overs. Jason Holder was especially unlucky, as De Villiers made his 162 off just 66 balls.
In the same game McCullum starred in, New Zealand paceman Tim Southee recorded the tournament's best figures to date, and his own personal best ODI stats. He ripped through the England line-up with his accurate swing bowling.
England were taken to task in the opening game of the tournament, eventually losing by 111 runs, but Steve Finn saw the lighter side of things when he took a useless hat-trick off the last three balls of the innings, when the score was already over 340.
In the same game as Finn's effort, Mitchell Marsh shone with the ball as well. He made light work of the top order as all nine wickets, aside from a run out, were taken by the three Mitchells.
Mitchell Starc will look back on his six wickets against New Zealand with disappointment as he was still on the losing side. He was defending a small total (151), but the Black Caps nearly chucked it away and Starc reduced them to a thrilling one-wicket win.
Shaiman's maiden ton
At the time of writing, the UAE's Shaiman Anwar is the tournament's leading run scorer, ahead of Sangakkara, Gayle and AB. His century against Ireland was his first in ODIs, and the UAE's first in World Cups. He's also got two fifties.
Zimbabwe made South Africa's life rather difficult in the first week of the tournament, running the Proteas to their limits, and Craig Ervine took a stunning catch on the ropes to dismiss AB de Villiers.
Miller's 138 not out
In that same game against Zimbabwe, David Miller and JP Duminy went absolutely berserk at the death, smashing 256 runs together in under 30 overs. Miller's score came off just 92 balls.
