The International Cricket Council (ICC) Cricket World Cup 2015 (CWC 2015), the pinnacle of international one day cricket, was jointly hosted by Australia and New Zealand during February and March 2015. This is only the second time these two nations have hosted the event, the last being the ICC Cricket World Cup 1992, 23 years ago. The Tournament’s 49 matches were played over 44 days across 14 host cities. This served as a major catalyst for collaboration between the trans-Tasman neighbours towards a common goal and generating a sense of national pride felt by all attendees. The Tournament was attended by over one million, and watched by over 1.56 billion people worldwide. On 29 March 2015, it culminated in a final between the two host nations at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) that attracted a record breaking attendance of 93,013.
