Best Answer

The first Cricket World Cup, held in 1975, was contested in England between eight teams, East Africa, West Indies, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Australia, New Zealand, and hosts England.

At that time, two of the teams did not hold Test status, those being East Africa and Sri Lanka, who did not play their first Test until 1982. The East Africa team consisted of players from the modern-day cricketing nations of Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and Zambia.
