Most centuries in Cricket world cups
6 is the most number of centuries made by a batsman in world cup career and Sachin Tendulkar is yet again the leader. Ricky Ponting has 5 century in world cup while Sourav Ganguly and Mark Waugh have 4 each but the name most surprizing is Rameez Raja who has 3 centuries.

Former Pakistani opener and now a well known cricket commentator - Rameez Raja finished 1987 World Cup with a century against England and then started 1992 World Cup with two centuries against West Indies and New Zealand... no wonder why Pakistan won that World Cup in Australia/New Zealand in 1992. Mathew Hayden, Vivian Richards, Saeed Anwar and Sanath Jayasuriya also have 3 centuries in world cup.

Most century in one world cup tournament by a batsman
Sourav Ganguly in 2003 = 4, vs Namibia, Sri Lanka, Kenya (2).
Mark Waugh in 1996 = 4, vs New Zealand, India, Kenya & Zimbabwe.
Sachin Tendulkar in 2003 = 3, vs Kenya, Sri Lanka, Kenya and Namibia.
Rmeez Raja in 1987 = 3, vs England, West Indies and New Zealand.
Saeed Anwar in 2003 = 3, vs India, New Zealand and Zimbabwe.
