Just to add; Viv Richards did not play at the football World Cup finals - Antigua have never qualified - he only played in some of the qualifying matches for the 1974 tournament.

There are others who have played international football and also cricket but didn't make it to the World Cup of cricket - Andy Goram springs to mind (who played in the qualifiers for the football World Cup but never played in any of the finals.)

As for tallest ever player at the World Cup - Nikola Zigic is the tallest at this years World Cup - according to Wikipedia he is 2.02m tall. Wikipedia also lists Czech Republic player Jan Koller, who played at the 2006 World Cup, as 2.02m tall. There are a few taller players in the world but none that have played at the World Cup finals themselves.
