Map of nations' best results after the 2007 Cricket World Cup

So far, 20 teams have competed in the Cricket World Cup at least once (excluding qualifying tournaments). Of these, six teams have taken part in every competition and only six have won. Australia are the current champions.Australia have won six times (1987, 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2015,2023) The West Indies won the first two, India won two (1983 and 2011), Sri Lanka and Pakistan and England won one each. The West Indies and Australia are also the only nations to have won consecutive titles (West Indies: 1975 and 1979; Australia: 1999, 2003 and 2007). Australia have also notably featured in 8 finals of the total 13 World Cups, including the four in a row (1996 to 2007). The furthest a non-Test playing nation has ever reached is the semi-finals, achieved by Kenya in the 2003 tournament.

India is the first host country to have won the world cup on the home ground in 2011. In 2015 Australia became the second host country to win the world cup. The only other host to reach a Final was England in the second tournament in 1979. Sri Lanka and England aside, other co-host nations which achieved or equalled their best finish in World Cups were New Zealand as semi-finalists in 1992 and runners-up in 2015, Zimbabwe reaching the Super Six in 2003 and Kenya as semi-finalists in 2003. In 1987, both co-hosting nations, India and Pakistan reached the semi-finals but neither managed to reach the final after losing to Australia and England respectively.
