Cricket ODI World Cup Winners List From 1975 To 2023 Along With Runner-up, Captain, Man Of The Match And Player Of The Tournament Winners

Through this page, we are taking a look at the Cricket World Cup Winners List from 1975 to 2023. The ICC ODI World Cup or the ICC Men's World Cup is undoubtedly the biggest event in cricket. The cricket World Cup is organised by the International Cricket Council (ICC) every four years. The first edition of the tournament was played in 1975 in England and since then the tournament has gone from strength to strength with each passing edition. 

The first edition saw the teams playing out ODI matches of 60 overs per side. The game was reduced to 50-over per side for the first time in 1987 ODI World Cup when the tournament moved out of England for the very first time. England hosted the first three editions of the competitions in 1975, 1979 and 1983.

West Indies were the inaugural winners by beating Australia in the final. Four years later, they defended their cricket World Cup title by beating England in the final. In 1983, they were on the verge of completing the hat-trick of World Cup wins but lost to India in the final at Lord's. In 2007, Australia became the first team to win three consecutive World Cup tournaments. The last edition was held in 2019 in the United Kingdom and the next edition of the cricket ODI World Cup will be held in India in 2023.

Cricket ODI World Cup Winners List from 1975 to 2023:

A total of six countries feature in the Cricket ODI World Cup Winners List. West Indies were the first-ever team to lay their hands on the famous trophy in 1975 before doing it again in 1979. Four years later, India became the second team in the world to win the ODI World Cup before Australia joined the club in 1987.

In 1992, Pakistan beat England in the final to win the tournament for the first time. Four years later, Sri Lanka won their maiden World Cup title before Australia won the next three editions from 1999 to 2007. In 2011, India broke Australia's historic run in the World Cup by winning the competition. But Australia were quick to bounce back and won the ODI World Cup once again in 2015. In 2019, England won their first-ever World Cup title.

We are now taking a look at the World Cup Winners List with Captain, Man of the Match, and Player of the Series.

While the Man of the Match awards have been given to the players right from the inaugural edition of the World Cup, the first Player of the Tournament award was given in 1992. Both the individual awards are now integral parts of the World Cup. In the first-ever World Cup, former West Indies captain Clive Lloyd was the Man of the Match before his compatriot Viv Richards won the award in 1979.

Lloyd is also the first captain to win the World Cup as well as the first captain to win it twice. After Lloyd, only Ricky Ponting has won multiple World Cup titles as captain. Till date, no player has managed to win the Man of the Match or the Player of the Tournament award twice.
