The World Cup has grown from a hopeful experiment into a major global sporting event that is now the pinnacle of one-day international cricket.

This exhibition is a tribute to the Cricket World Cup, its history, its origins, highs and lows. It follows the growth of this popular nation versus nation contest, and its rise to become a significant fixture on the cricket calendar. It traces the impact of the Cricket World Cup on the limited-overs game in Asia and how it has transformed cricket more broadly through India’s emergence as a dominant force in international cricket.
