The first World Cup organized by the International Cricket Council (ICC) took place in 1975. Australia and the West Indies were the cricket teams that played in the final, and the West Indies defeated Australia. Back then, only Test matches were the norm and could last up to five days.
But over the years, a one-day cricket match was coined from a Test match. A one-day cricket match has a shorter duration compared to its counterpart, Test match. Nevertheless, it is still a fascinating sport to watch.
Australia has gone on to win the coveted Cricket World Cup three times while the West Indies have won twice. Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and India have each won the World Cup once.
