ICC starts world Cups from 1975 hosted by England, won by West Indies.
West Indies won two titles (1975, 1979), India won one time (1983), Australia has four titles so far (1987, 1999, 2003, 2007), whereas Pakistan (1992) and Sri Lanka (1996) won this trophy only one time.
At 2011, 10th ICC World Cup will be held and this time quarter finals and semi finals are included in this event. From last two times super eights and super sixes are being included in the fixtures but at this time, ICC excluded them.
England and South Africa are two big teams but still they are waiting for the title, South Africa always falls the victim after some bad luck but England has tried to achieve the goal every time but they still not succeeded in their plans.
Now we will see who wins the trophy this time? England, South Africa and India are in very good form and higher in ICC ranking. It will decide on 2nd April, 2011.
