However, the ICC World Cup is that Lifesaving pill that rejuvenates the ODI format. Till Date, there have been Eleven Worlcup events out of which Australia has won 5 times and has been the most successful Team in WorldCup events. India has won twice and so as Westindies. Teams of Pakistan and Sri Lanka have won it once each. Any cricket Playing nation can take part in this flagship Contest of ICC to become the Cricket Champion of the world, The Top teams qualify directly whereas the rest of the Teams compete in another Tournament held by Internation Cricket Council (ICC) in order to qualify for this main event.
