In this post we will present the Men’s ICC Cricket World Cup Winners list in ODI & T20I Cricket. The Cricket World Cup was first played in 1975 in England which was won by West Indies. The tournament was played in a 60-over format.
The next 2 World Cup’s i.e. 1979 & 1983 both were held in England and won by West Indies & India respectively. The World Cup was held outside England for the first time in 1987 in India & Pakistan and won by Australia for the first time. This was also the first time when the overs were reduced to 50 overs a side.
The 1992 World Cup was won by Pakistan under the leadership of Imran Khan and in 1996 Sri Lanka emerged out as winners. The next three world cup edition i.e. 1999, 2003 & 2007 saw the Australian dominance with a hat-trick of trophies.
In 2011, India won their second trophy under the leadership of MS Dhoni after a gap of 28 years. In 2015, Australia were again crowned as the winners in their own country. The 2019 World Cup final was a tie between England & New Zealand and the super over also resulted in a tie. So England was declared as the World Cup Champions based on the boundaries.
