The Cricket World Cup is the most significant One Day International tournament in the world. The event is held every four years and features all ten full members of the International Cricket Council and six affiliate members, who qualify via the ICC Trophy. All sixteen teams initially compete in a round-robin group stage with the top eight moving on to a Super 8 stage. The tournament concludes with an elimination semi-final and final. England hosted the inaugural competition in 1975, which was won by the West Indies. Australia has by far been the most dominant nation, winning the tournament four times, including three consecutive victories: 1999, 2003 and 2007.
ICC Champions Trophy
Established in 1998, The Champions Trophy is a bi-annual cricket tournament contested by all 10 permanent members of the International Cricket Council, plus two associate members. It is the second most prestigious limited overs cricket competition in the world behind the Cricket World Cup. The format of the Champions Trophy includes a grouped round robin stage in which the top four teams qualify for the knockout semi final and subsequent final round.
The ICC Trophy, or ICC World Cup Qualifier, is a One Day International Status and World Cup qualification tournament for cricketing nations that are not permanent members of the International Cricket Council. Held every four years, the top six competing countries become eligible to participate in international limited overs competition (until the next Trophy in which they must re-qualify) and also gain entry into the Cricket World Cup. The next ICC Trophy will be held in 2009.
