ICC World Cup 2015

The 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup will be the eleventh ICC Cricket World Cup, and will be jointly hosted by Australia and New Zealand. The location of the games will be evenly split, with the location of the final yet to be decided. ICC unveiled the Logo of ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 after the final of ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 on 2 April 2011.
The hosting rights were awarded at the same time as those of the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup, which New Zealand and Australia had originally bid to host, and the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup was awarded to England. The 2011 tournament was awarded to the four Asian Test cricket playing countries India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in a 10 to 3 vote (although Pakistan subsequently lost its hosting rights due to security concerns). The International Cricket Council were sufficiently impressed with the trans-Tasman bid that it was decided to award the next world cup to them.


Ten test playing nations and four associate nations will participate in the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup. Initially straight after the 2011 edition of the tournament it was decided that only the ICC's 10 full members were to participate in the next world cup. This was met with heavy criticism from a number of associate nations, especially from the Ireland team, who had performed well in the 2007 and 2011 editions of the World Cup. The Cricket Committee voted in May 2011 to support the calls for a qualification process. During the ICC annual conference in Hong Kong from June 26–30, 2011, a number of issues was discussed. During this conference the ICC decided that 14 teams will participate in the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup opening four spots for associates to qualify for.
