ICC Cricket World Cup History


When One-Day International cricket came into being in 1971, there were calls for a tournament to be launched for the best in the game to gather and show off their skills. As a result, the first Cricket World Cup was held in 1975, but under the name Prudential Cup. England hosted the first three Prudential Cups, as they were considered the only country able to provide the required infrastructure. One-day cricket was different back then, with 60-over innings and teams wearing white. The Prudential Cup name fell away after the first three tournaments.

The first World Cup to be hosted outside of England was in 1987, with India and Pakistan co-hosting the tournament. This was the tournament where ODI cricket became a 50-over game. In 1992, teams wore coloured kits for the first time, while white balls and day/night matches were introduced. The 1992 ICC Cricket World Cup is considered as the turning point for ODI cricket.

Australia have dominated the World Cup over the years, winning five titles to date. The 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup will be the 13th edition of the tournament.

The match will forever be remembered as the 'Ben Stokes Final'. The English all-rounder scored a stunning 84 not out to save the match for the host nation.

ICC Cricket World Cup Top Batsman


India's Sachin Tendulkar holds the record for the most ICC Cricket World Cup runs with 2,278. Tendulkar played in five World Cups for India - 1992, 1996, 2003, 2007, and 2011. His best knock came at the 2003 ICC Cricket World Cup, where he scored 152 off 151 balls against Namibia. 'Little Master', as he is affectionately known, also holds the record for the most centuries at the ICC Cricket World Cup - six.

ICC Cricket World Cup Top Bowler


Modern limited-overs cricket is known as the batsman's game, but one man who had a knack of taking important wickets was Australia's Glenn McGrath. The right arm fast-medium bowler holds the record for most wickets by an individual at the ICC Cricket World Cup with 71. McGrath played at four World Cups during his career (1996, 1999, 2003, and 2007) and won three with Australia in that time (1999, 2003, and 2007).

Who will be the favourites to lift the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2023?


India are always a difficult side to beat at home, so they will be considered the favourites ahead of the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup. Australia and England are always contenders at major tournaments, while South Africa and New Zealand may have re-built their squads by the time the tournament starts. As the tournament is being held on the sub-continent, ruling out Pakistan, Sri Lanka, or an ever-improving Bangladesh will be foolish.
