The ICC Cricket World Cup is the undisputed main event of international cricket. Taking place every four years, the Cricket World Cup sees the cream of the international crop competing in a series of one-day international (ODI) matches to decide who will lift the coveted World Cup trophy. It's simply the best place to catch the world's best male cricket teams on the international stage.
The Cricket World Cup dates back to 1975 when the first edition was held in England and won by the West Indies. The tournament was held in England until 1987 when it was jointly held by India and Pakistan. Since then it has travelled across Europe, North America Australasia, Africa and Asia, allowing cricket fans across the world to catch the action.
The tournament regularly features full members of the ICC such as England, India, Australia and South Africs, while a few associate members have also previously qualified. Australia have been historically best after they won the competition three times in a row in the 1990s and 2000s. However, West Indies, India, Sri Lanka and Pakistan have also lifted the trophy. Fans of one-day international (ODI) cricket should not miss out.
