ODI Cricket World Cup Winners List (1975-2023)

Discover the full list of ODI Cricket World Cup winners spanning from 1975 to 2023.

The international championship of One Day International (ODI) cricket is called the Cricket World Cup (formally known as the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup). Every four years, the International Cricket Council (ICC), which oversees the sport, organizes the event. A preliminary qualification round precedes the finals competition. The ICC refers to the competition as the “flagship event of the international cricket calendar” and it is among the most watched sporting events in the globe. It is regarded by many as the ultimate cricket championship.

ODI Cricket World Cup Winners List (1975-2023)

Just four years had passed since the first ODI cricket match, when the inaugural World Cup was held in England in June 1975. However, a different Women’s Cricket World Cup had already taken place two years before to the inaugural men’s competition, and as early as 1912, a triangular tournament of Test matches between Australia, England, and South Africa had been staged, featuring numerous international teams. England hosted the World Cup for the first three times.

Fourteen ICC members have hosted at least one tournament match, with hosting being divided across nations under an unofficial rotation system starting with the 1987 competition.

To select which teams advance to the tournament phase under the present system, a qualification process is held over the course of the three years prior. Ten teams, including the host nation that qualified automatically, battle for the title in host nation locations over the course of approximately one month during the tournament phase. The format will be altered for the 2027 edition to allow for a larger 14-team final match.

Twenty teams have participated in all 13 tournament editions; ten teams took part in the most recent 2023 competition. Six Australians have won the competition, followed by two each from India and the West Indies, and one each from Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and England. When Kenya advanced to the tournament’s semifinals in 2003, it was the best showing by a team without all of its members.

Reigning Champions

Australia won the 2023 World Cup in India, and they are currently the reigning champions. The World Cup in 2027 will be staged in conjunction with South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Namibia.
