ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 is yet to begin and we have already seen a huge upset in the warm-up matches as Zimbabwe beat Sri Lanka. This would be good sign for all teams that they shouldn’t underestimate teams like Zimbabwe, Ireland, Scotland or Bangladesh as each of this team is capable of pulling off an upset against any big team.

But in today’s stat we will take a look at Win-Loss record of every team that has played in World Cup since 1975:

 Stat updated till the end of 2011 ICC World Cup

So far 19 teams have been featured in the ODI World Cup since 1975. Australia tops the list in terms of most matches played as well won with 76 and 55 matches respectively. There is team that is close to Australia as the next team in the list is New Zealand with 70 World Cup matches and 40 wins. India is currently on the third position with 67 World Cup matches and has won 39 of those. If they reach the final this time around, then they could definitely overtake New Zealand.

After the Top 8 teams, the team to play most matches is Zimbabwe with 51 matches; they have played more matches than South Africa (47). But Zimbabwe also tops the list for most loses in World Cup with 37 lost matches to their name. After beating Sri Lanka in the warm-up match this team would definitely want to get away from this record to their name but that doesn’t seem to happen anytime close.

 England Cricket Team may have not won the WOrld Cup so far but they are 4th on the list with 66 matches and 39 wins. Another team that hasn’t won the World Cup and has still made it to the Top 5 is New Zealand. As said earlier, they are on 2nd.
