longest winning streak of a team in cricket world cup

The ICC Cricket World Cup is the biggest and most prestigious tournament in cricket and is held once every four years. Only the top teams compete in the World Cup, and the winner is declared the best cricket team in the world.

As such, fans get to witness intense and competitive games by teams. The fierce rivalries between certain players and countries like India and Pakistan, and Australia and England, coupled with high stakes and thousands of spectators give rise to sporting spectacle of the highest order.

The level of excitement the ODI World Cup provides is unmatched by any other tournament in the world. Due to the pressure and level of competition involved, it’s challenging to maintain a winning streak.

It has happened many times that teams made it to the playoffs by the skin of their teeth but went on to lift the trophy. The opposite scenario has also played out numerous times a team remained unbeaten in the league stage but choked in the semi-finals.

Today, we take a look at the teams with the most consecutive wins in the ICC World Cup. We’ll cover the most consecutive wins in a single World Cup edition and the overall history of the tournament.

India registered its eighth consecutive win in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 after thumping South Africa by 243 runs at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Sunday. It was the Men in Blue’s joint-longest winning run in the history of the World Cup, equalling its victorious streak at the 2003 World Cup, where it lost to Australia in the final.
