Dennis Amiss of England scored the the first ODI century in World Cups. He made 137 against India in the 1975 World Cup. On the same day New Zealand's Glenn Turner scored 171 not out against East Africa. It remained the highest individual total over the next two editions until Indian cricketer Kapil Dev scored 175 not out against Zimbabwe in 1983.
