The Indoor Cricket World Cup is the premier international championship of both men's and women's Junior World Series of Indoor Cricket and the Masters World Series of Indoor Cricket held at similar intervals.

The World Cup is contested by the members of the WICF (though member nations have not always entered teams) and beyond being an affiliated member of that body there are no formal qualifications for entry. Australia have been the most successful side having won every world title in both divisions to date.

The 2014 Indoor Cricket World Cup is to be held in New Zealand.

Tournament Format

Whilst the precise nature of the tournament has varied slightly over the years, each tournament usually follows a simple round robin format followed by finals contested by the highest placed sides. The semi finals are contested by the top four sides and more often than not the winner of each semi final progresses to the World Cup final.

The tournament usually takes place over the course of 7 to 10 days and is sometimes run in conjunction with the Masters World Series or the Junior World Series.
