ODI World Cup history:

ODI World Cup history

The Cricket World Cup began in 1975 with England hosting the first-ever edition. They were the hosts for the next two editions of the tournament too. The competition was officially known as the Prudential Cup after the sponsors Prudential plc. The matches consisted of 60 overs per team and were played with red-ball. All the players wore cricket whites and all the games were played during daytime.

In the first Cricket World Cup edition, a total of 8 teams participated - England, Australia, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, West Indies, Sri Lanka and a composite team from East Africa. West Indies won the first ODI World Cup by beating Australia in the final. 

Eight teams participated in the second edition of the tournament too and West Indies won that competition as well by beating England in the final. Four years later, the tournament was held in England once again and West Indies were just one win away from winning it for the third time but were stunned by India in the final.

The ODI World Cup moved out of England for the first time in 1987 when India and Pakistan co-hosted it. Once again, eight teams participated in the competition but the number of overs per innings was reduced to 50 from 60 which is the current ODI format. Australia won the tournament for the first time by beating England in the final.

In 1992, the Cricket World Cup took place in Australia and New Zealand. That edition can be called the pioneer of the modern-day World Cup as the tournament saw the introduction of colored clothing and white-ball for the first time. The 1992 World Cup also saw day-night games for the first time in the tournament. Pakistan won the tournament by beating England in the final.

The World Cup returned to Asia in 1996 with India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka co-hosting it. Sri Lanka won the competition by beating Australia in the final. 3 years later in 1999, the tournament was hosted primarily by England but few selected matches were also played in Scotland, Ireland, Wales and the Netherlands. Australia won the the tournament by beating Pakistan in the final.

Australia won the tournament in 2003 and 2007 too before India won the 2011 edition. Australia reclaimed the World Cup in 2015 before England finally won their first-ever World Cup in 2019. ODI World Cup 2023 is scheduled to be played in India.
