The World’s First Cricket World Cup was held in England in 1975, the Cricket World Cup was played just four years after the first one-day International (ODI) match. In view of the popularity of one-day cricket at that time, the ICC (International Cricket Council) organized it.
The first World Cup tournament was played in 60 overs and during the day players used traditional white clothes and used red cricket balls.
The 1979 World Cup introduced the ICC Trophy Competition to select non-Test playing teams to compete in the tournament. Sri Lanka and Canada were the first beneficiaries of this provision, making it a competition for teams.
The next edition was also played in England in 1983. India was a surprise winner in 1983, which gave rise to a cricket revolution in the subcontinent, which gradually gave them up to the epicenter of cricket in the modern era.
The World Cup played for the first time out of England was played in 1987 in India and Pakistan. It also marked a deficiency of 60 to 50 overs which has now become an ideal.
West Indies won the first two World Cup tournaments, but Australia has been the dominant power in recent years.
