ICC World Cup winning captains

 

The ICC Cricket World Cup is one of the world’s most viewed sporting events; it is organised by International Cricket Council after every four years. The inaugural season of this men’s World Cup was held in England in June 1975. The first three seasons of this tournament were held in England. From the fourth season, hosting has been shared between fourteen ICC members. Even though the highest-ranking teams get automatic qualification status, ICC Cricket World Cup is open to all ICC members. Australia have dominated this tournament by winning five trophies in 1987, 1999, 2003, 2007, and 2015. Let’s have a look on the results of all ICC Cricket World Cups so far.
