2019 World Cup fifth tournament hosted in England, he could not even win a single title
First World War of 1975 and the second World Cup in 1979 was won by the West Indies, 1983 got a new champion- India
Sports desk At present, the World Cup environment becomes months ago, but it was not 44 years ago. Then there was no particular interest in the players as well as the common people. The first woman's cricket world cup was played in 1973. The 3rd World Cup was flagged off in a meeting on July 25, 3 days before the final of this tournament, which was played in 1975.
Former Pakistani cricketer Javed Miandad, who was only 17 years old in the 1975 World Cup They say – in fact at that time we did not know what the World Cup is? I think teams participating in it also do not know the importance. England is considered to be the father of cricket, but he could not win this title at any one time so far.
The first time the World Cup was organized in 1972
The first time that the World Cup was organized was held in the annual meeting of 1972. However, the biggest obstacle in organizing this tournament was India and Pakistan. After the war of 1965, sports relations between India and Pakistan had worsened. The ICC feared that if India and Pakistan refuse to play in this tournament, only four Test playing countries will remain. The ICC gave the green signal for the tournament on July 25, 1973. Although earlier it was not named World Cup. Daily Express named it 'International Tournament'. But this name was not used. The next day the official name of this tournament became 'World Cup'.
TCCB's responsibility to organize the tournament
ICC entrusted the Test and County Cricket Board (TCCB) the responsibility of organizing this tournament. TCCB further became the England Cricket Board. The biggest problem was the money. TCCB had kept the cost of this tournament one million pounds (15 million rupees). By 1974 the ICC and TCCB did not get the title sponsor, then decided to organize TV rights and sponsorships. However, in the US, the insurance company of America became the sponsor of the Prudential World Cup. ICC called it a prudential cup. But people and the media considered it a World Cup. The tournament started from June 7, 1975. All the teams had arrived here a day earlier.
The draw of the tournament was removed only a year ago. The media did not take it seriously until the start of the tournament. On the first day 20 thousand people reached Lords to watch India-England match. England had scored 334/4. India had scored 132/3 in 60 overs. Opener Sunil Gavaskar scored 36 runs. Although this tournament did not get a good start, but the match-to-match, it gradually pulled the attention of the audience towards it.
The first three World Cups were named after Prudential Cup
The first World Cup was held in 1975. Venue – England The greatest contender was Australia in 1975, but with the image of 'Calypso Cricketer', the West Indies, who came out to the ground, surprised everyone by becoming the first cricket champion of cricket. Captain Clive Lloyd was asked to master the art of converting 11 boys into a cricket team. In 1979, then became the West Indies Champion. Found new champion in 1983- India Before the tournament was started, the speculative market was at 66-1 in India. I.e. completely rejected.
Hero of India's victory in 1983, Kapil Dev
Captain Kapil Dev caught the historic catch of Vivian Richards after running behind 20 yards in the final. Kapil's unbeaten innings against Zimbabwe's 175 not out still remembers all the fans. This is the fifth World Cup hosted by England. But the English team has not won the title till today.
