Prudential World Cup Cricket 1975, England
Dates: 7 June 1975 to 21 June 1975
Teams: England, Australia, New Zealand, West Indies, India, Pakistan, Srilanka and East Africa
In 1975, cricket's first one-day World Cup was held in England. Sponsored by Prudential Assurance, the eight sides to participate were the six Test-playing nations, plus Sri Lanka (not then a test side) and East Africa. East Africa were outclassed, but Sri Lanka put up a brave show, especially against Australia. The teams were split into two preliminary groups of four; the top two teams in each group progressed to the semi-final stage. Each innings was limited to a maximum of 60 overs

Discuss World Cup
West Indies won the first World CupWest Indies won the inaugural Word Cup defeating Australia by 17 runs at the historic Lords cricket ground.Put into bat, West Indies piled up a mammoth 291 for eight off its allotted 60 overs. Skipper Clive Lloyd led from the front scoring a fine century (102) and was ably supported by Rohan Kanhai who notched a handy 55. Left-arm seamer Gary Gilmour was the pick of the Aussie bowlers picking up a haul of 5 for 48.
Chasing 292 for victory, Australia did get off to a good start with opener Alan Turner scoring a solid 40. Once he fell, wickets tumbled at regular intervals. Barring skipper Ian Chappell who authored a fine 62, rest of the batters came a cropper. Keith Boyce was the wrecker-in chief for the Windies, snaffling 4 for 50. Clive Lloyd was named Man of the Match.

Discuss World Cup
West Indies beat Australia by 17 runsHaving reached the final unbeaten, the West Indies maintained their winning run with a fine performance in the first World Cup final.
After being put in, they looked in trouble at 50 for three before a partnership between the rapier and the rock changed the game.
Clive Lloyd, after being dropped by Ross Edwards on 26, raced to 50 at a run-a-ball and reached his century off 82 balls, an innings that completely over-shadowed Gary Gilmour's feat of taking five wickets.
And with Rohan Kanhai, who went 11 overs without scoring a run, dropping anchor at the other end, the pair put on 149 to help their side to a respectable 291 for eight.
Australia started well, careering along at four an over for 20 overs, but were undone by some shambolic running between the wickets and some sensational fielding.
Alvin Kallicharran set the standard with a stunning slip catch and then came the run outs. Alan Turner, Greg Chappell, Ian Chappell... the list went on and the wheels slowly but surely came off the Australian charge.
Dennis Lillee and Jeff Thomson put on 41 in six overs for the final wicket but the game was up, with the pair needing 18 off nine balls, when Thomson became the fifth man to be run out.
Man of the Match: CH Lloyd
