About theÂ ICC Cricket World Cup
The CWC is the international championship ofÂ One Day InternationalÂ (ODI)Â cricket. The event is organised by the sport’s governing body, theÂ International Cricket CouncilÂ (ICC), with preliminary qualification rounds leading up to a finals tournament held every four years. The tournament is one of the world’s most viewed sporting events and is considered the “flagship event of the international cricket calendar” by the ICC.
The finals of the World Cup are contested by the tenÂ full membersÂ of the ICC (all of which areÂ Test-playing teams) and a number of teams made up fromÂ associate and affiliate membersÂ of the ICC, selected via theÂ World Cricket LeagueÂ andÂ a later qualifying tournament. A total ofÂ 19 teamsÂ have competed in the ten editions of the tournament, with 14 competing in the 2011 tournament. Australia has won the tournament four times, with theÂ West Indies, India (twice each),Â PakistanÂ andÂ Sri LankaÂ (once each) also having won the tournament. The best performance by a non-full-member team came whenÂ KenyaÂ made the semi-finals of theÂ 2003 tournament.
