The 1999 ICC Cricket World Cup, the seventh version of the competition, was hosted mainly by England, with some games being hosted in Ireland, Wales, Scotland and the Netherlands. Australia won the cup by beating Pakistan by 8 wickets. It was a one-sided final match at the Lord's cricket ground in London
The 12 teams were separated into 2 groups; each team played all the others in their group in the league period. The top three from each group advanced to the Super Sixes, a new conception for the 1999 World Cup, where each qualifier from group A played each qualifier from group B. The teams also carried forward their points from the games against the other qualifiers from their group. The top four in the Super Sixes contested the semifinals.
