ICC Cricket ODI  World Cup 2015 World Cup

Let’s take a look at ICC Cricket ODI World Cup 2015 Winner.

The 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup is the 11th Cricket World Cup, an international one-day (ODI) cricket tournament held every four years in which men’s national teams compete and is organized by the International Cricket Council ( ICC). It was co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand from 14 February to 29 March 2015, with Australia winning. 

This is the second time the tournament is being held in Australia and New Zealand after the 1992 Cricket World Cup.

The tournament consists of 14 teams, divided into two groups of seven players, with each team playing the other team once in that group. The top four teams from each group qualified for play-offs consisting of quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals. The final was between hosts Australia and New Zealand. Australia won their fifth Cricket World Cup with a 7 wicket win.

The total attendance was 1,016,420, an average of 21,175 per game. A crowd of 93,013 attended the final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, a record crowd for one-day cricket in Australia. The largest crowd in India was the semi-final between Australia and India, which accounted for 15% of television viewing households. 

Format

Like the 2011 World Cup, this tournament consisted of 14 teams and featured member and affiliate countries.

The format was the same as in 2011. The seven teams will play each other once before the top four teams from each group advance to the quarter-finals.

On 29 January 2015, the ICC reinstated the use of super overs in Cricket World Cup finals if the match ended in a draw.

Qualification

As per ICC rules, 10 full ICC countries are automatically eligible for the tournament. Immediately after the 2011 World Cup, it was decided that the next tournament would be reduced to 10 regular members. 

This was heavily criticized by several concerned countries, particularly the Irish cricket team, which had performed well, including wins against Pakistan and England in 2007 and 2011. After upholding the ICC Cricket Committee’s qualification process, the ICC reversed its decision in June 2011 and ruled that 14 teams, including four associate or member states, would participate in the 2015 World Cup.

At the ICC Executive Committee meeting in September 2011, the ICC decided on a new qualification format. The top two teams from the 2011–2013 ICC Cricket League World Cup qualify directly. The other six teams are included in the third and fourth group in 2011, and the fourth group, two teams of ICC World Cricket Legs, two Lego cricket teams, two world championship teams and the World Championships. 

As a result of the match with Ireland on July 9, 2013, Ireland won the 2015 World Cup on October 4, 2013, Afghanistan met the first Cricket World Cup on October 4, 2013. Kenya ranked second than Ireland. 

Scotland has won the United Arab Emirates in the 2014 Cricket World Cup final and both teams in the last two wins in the 2015 World Cricket Championship.
