The International Cricket Council (ICC) Cricket World Cup is an international association cricket competition established in 1975. It is contested by the men's national teams of the members of the ICC, the sport's global governing body. The tournament generally takes place every four years. Most recently, the 2011 Cricket World Cup, jointly hosted by Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka in 2011, was won by India, who beat their co-hosts Sri Lanka. The current trophy was instituted in 1999. It always remains with the ICC, and a replica is awarded to the winning team.
