HERE ARE THE FULL LIST OF TEAM WHICH ARE GOING TO PLAY IN ICC CRICKET WORLD CUP 2015.

Teams



India's triumph in the ICC Cricket World Cup 1983 is still talked about today but it wasn’t until 2011, under Mahendra Singh Dhoni, that it repeated the feat at home in Mumbai. India beat co-hosts Sri Lanka in the final, leading to wide celebrations across the country. After its taste of glory in 2011, India will be out to claim back to back titles in 2015.

Australia has competed at each of the 10 editions of the ICC Cricket World Cup, winning the title four times - more than any other country. As co-hosts of the 2015 tournament, Australia will be out to wow the hometown fans and claim an unprecedented fifth World Cup title.
Past Performances

New Zealand will play proud co-host to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 and will be hoping that a home crowd advantage as well as past semi-final experience will help achieve its first finals appearance in the tournament. Can the home fan base motivate New Zealand to its best World Cup performance yet?

Despite coming runners up in 1979, 1987 and 1992, England is yet to win an ICC Cricket World Cup title. With a large ex-pat population in both Australia and New Zealand and the vocal support of the travelling ‘Barmy Army’, you can expect the English to bring strong support to make history in 2015.
Past Performances
2011     Quarter-finals
2007     Pool stage (Super 8)

The Afghanistan Cricket Federation (now the Afghanistan Cricket Board) was formed in 1995 and became an affiliate member of the ICC in 2001, at the same time the national team was formed. It has been a remarkable journey for Afghanistan over the years. After rising rapidly through the Pepsi ICC World Cricket League, starting in Division Five in May 2008, the team qualified for its maiden ICC Cricket World Cup on 4 October 2013 when it defeated Kenya to finish second in the Pepsi ICC World Cricket League Championship. Afghanistan was confirmed as the 37th Associate Member of the ICC in 2013.
Past Performances
2014     Debut



Bangladesh got a real taste of ICC Cricket World Cup action when it co-hosted the tournament in 2011, alongside India and Sri Lanka. Bangladesh qualified for its first ICC Cricket World Cup in 1999 where it shocked Pakistan in its last group match before making a creditable exit. Although its 2003 campaign went winless it bounced back in 2007 to achieve significant victories over India and South Africa.

Still relatively new on the ICC Cricket World Cup stage, Ireland will be in Australia and New Zealand in 2015 for their 3rd Cricket World Cup after qualifying for the first time in 2007. Ireland is the first affiliate nation to qualify for Cricket World Cup 2015 through their dominance of the Pepsi ICC World Cricket League Championship 2011-2013. During their last two appearances at the Cricket World Cup in 2007 and 2011 managed to beat traditional cricketing nations Pakistan and England respectively.
Past Performances
2011     Pool Stage
2007     Super 8


The last time the ICC Cricket World Cup was held in Australia and New Zealand, it was Pakistan which was crowned champion. After three successive appearances in the semi-final of the ICC Cricket World Cup, Pakistan made it one step further in 1992 when Imran Khan led his side to a 22-run win over England in the final at the MCG. It reached the final again in 1999 but failed to get out of the group stages in the last two competitions. Pakistan will be hoping for an encore of 1992 in 2015.

After qualifying for the first time for ICC Cricket World Cup in 1992, South Africa has made it through to the knock-out stage in all bar one tournament (2003) but is yet to win. The team will be looking to take its performance one step further in 2015 by securing a spot in the final.

A competitor since the inaugural tournament in 1975, Sri Lanka has seen success on the World Cup stage. It won the title in 1996, overpowering Australia in the final but was unable to repeat the feat in either 2007 or 2011 when it was defeated in the final by Australia and India respectively.
