The hosting rights were awarded in April 2006,
after England and Wales withdrew from the bidding
to host the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, which was
held in Australia and New Zealand. The first
match will be played at The Oval while the final
will be played at Lord's. It is the fifth time
that the Cricket World Cup will be held in
England and Wales, following the 1975, 1979, 1983
and 1999 World Cups.

The format for the tournament will be a single
group of ten teams, with each team playing the
other nine teams, and the top four teams
progressing to a knockout stage of semi-finals
and a final. The 10-team-tournament has gained
criticism due to the lack of associate teams in
the tournament. Given the increase of the test
playing nations from 10 to 12 with the admission
of Ireland and Afghanistan in June 2017, it will
be the first World Cup to be contested without
all of the test playing nations being present,
but the ICC plan to keep the competition at just
10 teams.

The first World Cup was organised in England in
June 1975, with the first ODI cricket match
having been played only four years earlier.
However, a separate Women's Cricket World Cup had
been held two years before the first men's
tournament, and a tournament involving multiple
international teams had been held as early as
1912, when a triangular tournament of Test
matches was played between Australia, England and
South Africa. The first three World Cups were
held in England. From the 1987 tournament
onwards, hosting has been shared between
countries under an unofficial rotation system,
with fourteen ICC members having hosted at least
one match in the tournament.

some matches also being held in Scotland,
Ireland, Wales and the Netherlands.2526
Twelve teams contested the World Cup. Australia
qualified for the semi-finals after reaching
their target in their Super 6 match against South
Africa off the final over of the match.27 They
then proceeded to the final with a tied match in
the semi-final also against South Africa where a
mix-up between South African batsmen Lance
Klusener and Allan Donald saw Donald drop his bat
and stranded mid-pitch to be run out. In the
final, Australia dismissed Pakistan for 132 and
then reached the target in less than 20 overs and
with eight wickets in hand.

The ICC Cricket World Cup Trophy is presented to
the winners of the World Cup. The current trophy
was created for the 1999 championships, and was
the first permanent prize in the tournament's
history. Prior to this, different trophies were
made for each World Cup.51 The trophy was
designed and produced in London by a team of
craftsmen from Garrard Co over a period of two
months.

The format for the group stage is to have all ten
teams play each other in a single group. This
means a total of 45 matches will be played with
each team playing a total of nine matches. The
top four teams from the group will then progress
to the knockout stage. A similar format was
previously used in the 1992 Cricket World Cup.
