The 2015 Cricket World Cup (authoritatively known as ICC Cricket World Cup 2015) was the eleventh Cricket World Cup, mutually facilitated by Australia and New Zealand from 14 February to 29 March 2015. Australia crushed New Zealand by 7 wickets to win their fifth ICC Cricket World Cup. Fourteen groups played 49 coordinates in 14 settings, with Australia organizing 26 diversions at grounds in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Hobart, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney while New Zealand facilitated 23 recreations in Auckland, Christchurch, Dunedin, Hamilton, Napier, Nelson and Wellington.
The facilitating rights were granted in the meantime as those of the 2011 Cricket World Cup, which Australia and New Zealand had initially offered to have, and the 2019 Cricket World Cup, which was granted to England. The 2011 competition was granted to the four Asian Test cricket playing nations: India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh (Pakistan later lost the co-facilitating rights because of a psychological militant assault on the Sri Lankan group). The International Cricket Council were adequately awed with the trans-Tasman offer that it was chosen to grant the following World Cup to Australia and New Zealand. This was the second time the competition was held in Australia and New Zealand, with the first being the 1992 Cricket World Cup.
India were the protecting champions, having won the competition in 2011. Tickets for the Pool B coordinate amongst India and Pakistan, played on 15 February 2015, apparently sold out inside 12 minutes of going marked down.
The last match of the competition occurred at the Melbourne Cricket Ground between co-has New Zealand and Australia before a record horde of 93,013 while the normal participation all through the competition was 21,175 coming about because of the combined competition participation of 1,016,420 and a washed out diversion amongst Australia and Bangladesh in Brisbane for which no participation figures were accessible.
