West Indies emerge as early trendsetters
The first edition of the men's ODI Cricket World Cup in 1975 was played in England featuring eight teams — England, India, Australia, Pakistan, West Indies, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and East Africa.
The West Indian cricket team, led by Clive Lloyd, won the inaugural World Cup by defeating Australia in the final by 17 runs at Lord’s.
Bowlers Keith Boyce, Andy Roberts and Bernard Julien and legendary batter Vivian Richards and Lloyd himself helped the Caribbean side win the Cup without losing a match.
England also hosted the next two editions of the World Cups. With their core intact, the West Indies won the 1979 edition as well, defeating the hosts by 92 runs in the final.
