New Zealand has 23 tournament matches and will host every team at least once, making this a once in a generation opportunity to see the world’s best going head-to-head in our backyard.

The last time the ICC Cricket World Cup was held in Australia and New Zealand, it was Pakistan which was crowned champion. After three successive appearances in the semi-final of the ICC Cricket World Cup, Pakistan made it one step further in 1992 when Imran Khan led his side to a 22-run win over England in the final at the MCG. It reached the final again in 1999 but failed to get out of the group stages in the last two competitions. Pakistan will be hoping for an encore of 1992 in 2015.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has made it to the ICC Cricket World Cup for the first time since 1996. Coached by former Pakistan pace bowler Aqib Javed, UAE has made it to a global event for only the third time. It recently even qualified for ICC World Twenty20 Bangladesh 2014. UAE finished second in the Super Six stage of the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier New Zealand 2014 to seal its place at the showpiece event.

New Zealand will play proud co-host to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 and will be hoping that a home crowd advantage as well as past semi-final experience will help achieve its first finals appearance in the tournament. Can the home fan base motivate New Zealand to its best World Cup performance yet?

The Afghanistan Cricket Federation (now the Afghanistan Cricket Board) was formed in 1995 and became an affiliate member of the ICC in 2001, at the same time the national team was formed. It has been a remarkable journey for Afghanistan over the years. After rising rapidly through the Pepsi ICC World Cricket League, starting in Division Five in May 2008, the team qualified for its maiden ICC Cricket World Cup on 4 October 2013 when it defeated Kenya to finish second in the Pepsi ICC World Cricket League Championship. Afghanistan was confirmed as the 37th Associate Member of the ICC in 2013.
