ICC Cricket World Cup 2023

ICC Men World Cup

The ICC Men’s World Cup 2023 or the ICC ODI World Cup is just a handful of days away. The ODI World Cup is arguably the biggest competition in cricket, organised by the International Cricket Council (ICC) every four years. Till date, 12 editions of the competition has taken place.

ICC ODI World Cup history:

The ICC Cricket World Cup began in 1975 with England hosting the first three editions. Eight teams participated in the first edition and West Indies won the inaugural edition by beating Australia in the final. The Caribbean outfit won the second edition as well, before India beat them in the final of the third edition.

The World Cup ventured beyond England’s borders for the first time in 1987, with India and Pakistan as joint hosts. One of the major changes that took place during that edition was the reduction in the number of overs per innings, from 60 to 50. Australia clinched the title by defeating bitter rivals England in final.

In 1992, the ICC Men’s cricket World Cup took place in Australia and New Zealand, marking the advent of colored clothing and day-night matches. Pakistan emerged victorious as England ended up on the losing side once again. Four years later in 1996, the World Cup was co-hosted by India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka became the third Asian team after India and Pakistan to win the World Cup. They had defeated Australia in the final in Lahore. From 1999 to 2007, Australia thoroughly dominated ODIs and won three World Cup titles in a row. In 2011, India prevented Australia from winning the tournament for the fourth time in a row. India also became the first team to win the World Cup on home soil.

But four years later, Australia reclaimed the ODI World Cup by winning it on home turf. And in the last edition of the ICC Men World Cup, England finally ended their long wait for an ODI World Cup title. They beat New Zealand in the final.

Australia are the most successful team in the history of the World Cup, having won it five times. The only other teams who have won the tournament more than once are West Indies (2) and India (2). Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and England have each won it once.
