One Day International (ODI) cricket was first introduced in 1971 as Australia faced England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). At first, it was a 60 over per side match. Meanwhile, the cricket world cup was introduced first in 1974 after the limited-overs format was introduced in 1971. West Indies were the first team to lift the limited-overs ICC trophy in the inaugural edition. However, soon it changes and it became a 50 over per side game. Time fills and many teams had lifted the ODI trophy in different ICC tournaments rather than ICC World Cup like Champions Trophy.
