A look at the current world rankings for men's one-day cricket makes very pleasant reading for English cricket fans. The test team may have its ups and downs as they prepare to take on the Australians later this summer, but the one-day team top the world rankings.

England Win First World Cup
England won their first ever ICC Cricket World Cup when beating New Zealand in the final on July 14. New Zealand batted first and made 241-8 in their 50 overs. England lost early wickets but Ben Stokes (who was born in New Zealand) and Joss Buttler put on 109 for the fifth wicket.
Wickets began to tumble with Buttler out for 59. Ben Stokes was there till the finish though and a run of two sixes (one via four overthrows) in the final over nearly took them to the 242 required. The last ball saw Tim Wood run out for a duck leaving England 241 all out. In the old days, that would have seen New Zealand win as they had lost fewer wickets. However, rules have changed and the match went into a Super Over.
England batted first and made 15-0 in their over. Again New Zealand looked likely to win with Jimmy Neesham scoring 13 not out. The Kiwis needed two off the last ball but Martin Guptil was run out. That left the scores level and England won due to scoring more boundaries in their innings. Why we couldn't have had another Super Over who knows!

What is the 2019 Cricket World Cup?
Since 1975 the top cricketing nations have been battling it out to become recognised as the best one-day team in the world. Each game may take a lot longer than the T20 games that have become incredibly popular but they have the ability to create just as much (if not more) excitement and nail-biting finishes. This year the tournament is being held in England between May 30th and July 14th with ten countries taking part.
It wasn't until 1971 that the first one-day international was played. Australia took on England in a game played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. That game wasn't in the diary but the test match had been washed out and it was decided to play a one-day game instead.
One-day cricket had become popular in England during the 1960s with competitions such as The Gillette Cup and The John Player Sunday League. It was inevitable that international one-day cricket would become a reality and in 1972 a three-match series was held as England hosted Australia.
Those games were played over 55 overs a side, just less than the 60 overs played in the Gillette Cup. England won that series 2-1. Three years later the first ever World Cup was held in England and was played over the familiar 60 overs format. The first match saw England hit 338/4 but in reply India only made 132/3 with opener Sunil Gavaskar scoring 36 not out off 174 balls. As someone who attended that match 44 years ago (where does the time go?), their innings was the most boring ever seen in one-day international cricket.
This is the 12th World Cup and the tournament has grown in popularity over the years. Matches in this tournament will be played over 50 overs a side and scores of 350 plus are the par these days. Don't be surprised if some matches see the 400 mark breeched.
There are ten teams competing this year and there has been criticism over the exclusion of countries such as Ireland, Scotland and Zimbabwe. The tournament begins with a 10-team league with each country facing each other once. That's likely to lead to some games in the latter part of the first round featuring teams who won't be able to qualify for the semi-finals. There are important ranking points to play for though.
The top four countries will meet in the semi-finals with the final being held at Lord's on July 14.
