A look back at the 2015 Cricket World Cup

Australia's Mitchell Starc was the 2015 Player of the Tournament, taking 22 wickets in total to help his side lift the trophy for an unprecedented fifth time. Starc dismissals came at an average of 10.2, the best rate of any bowler to have taken more than two wickets at the tournament. Will Starc's blistering pace have a similar impact as the Australians - boosted by the return of Steve Smith and David Warner - head over to England and Wales at the end of May with their sights set on defending their crown?
