Pakistan’s Akmals

B rothers have made their mark on the

 World Cup with Umar Akmal, Pakistan's wicketkeeper in their team's loss to India

on Sunday, succeeding Kamran, gloveman

at the 2011 edition, behind the stumps.

Ireland's O'Briens

Ireland's O'Briens, Niall and Kevin, are seasoned World Cup campaigners. Four years ago, Kevin carved out his own place in cricket history with the fastest-ever World Cup hundred, as Ireland recorded a stunning win over England.

Aussie Chappells

The inaugural World Cup in 1975 almost resulted in a tournament triumph for the Chappell brothers, with skipper Ian and Greg both members of the Australia side beaten by the West Indies in a memorable final at Lord's.

Victorious Waughs

In 1999 at Lord's, Steve Waugh led an Australia side featuring twin brother Mark to victory over Pakistan in the 1999 World Cup final to become the first and still the only brothers to have won a World Cup trophy.

Kiwi McCullums

New Zealand's McCullum brothers will be looking to emulate the Waugh twins at this World Cup, although off-spinner Nathan will need to force his way past Daniel Vettori if he is to join skipper Brendon McCullum in the Black Caps' side.
