England host the first ICC World Cup in June 1975. England was consequetive 3 times host of ICC World Cup .
At that time the ICC World Cup was known as The Prudential World Cup.
The matches were of 60 overs per team and played in traditional white uniform and red balls.They were all played during the day. Eight teams participated in the first tournament : Australia, England, West Indies, Pakistan, India, New Zealand with Sri Lanka and a composite team from East Africa, One noteable omission was the South African Team who were not competing due to international sports boycott. West Indies won the first Cricket World Cup by defeating Australia by 17 runs in the final.
