But in year 1992, colorful uniforms were used first time and all the cricket fans were too happy to watch their cricketers in different colorful uniforms.

- Cricket Stadiums : In the beginning of cricket world cup 1975, cricket stadiums were not that good as compare to today. At that time when any cricket match ended, all the audience came in the stadium due to absence of boundaries and restrictions.
