History of the ICC World Cup
The first ever ICC Cricket World Cup was organized in England in June 1975. Nevertheless, a Women’s Cricket World Cup was also organized just two years before the first men’s tournament was held. In 1912, a three-angle tournament of Test matches was played between Australia, England, and South Africa.
The first three World Cups were held in England in a sequence of series. But, since the 1987 tournament, the World Cup has been set to be held between countries under an unofficial rotation system. In the system, around fourteen ICC members have hosted at least one match in the tournament.
The current format of the qualification of the tournament involves a three-year phase. Over the preceding three years, this will help to determine which teams are credentialed to play in the tournament.
Currently, 10 teams, including the automatically qualifying host nation compete to qualify. They contend for the title at venues within the host nation for a whole month. However, in 2027, the format will face slight changes and will see an expansion of 14 final competitions.
So far, twenty teams have completed the twelve-tournament series, with ten teams competing in the recent 2019 tournament.
Australia has won the most championships with 5 win trophies, followed by India and West Indies twice each. Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and England have won the trophy only once.
Currently, England is the victor after winning the 2019 World Cup edition. The 2023 World Cup is held in India and is ongoing. Today’s match is between Sri Lanka and Pakistan. Hopes are high for Pakistan to win the match, but the results will be shown further.
Pitch Report of Sri Lanka vs Pakistan match
The One Day International World Cup 2023, Sri Lanka vs Pakistan is to be held in Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Hyderabad.

In addition to that, spinners may find possibilities as the game unfolds.
However, on the batting side, conditions are likely to become more helpful to score in the second innings. The boundaries of the stadium also are likely to allow easy rotation of singles and twos. Therefore, the team that will win the toss is expected to go for the fielding first.
