World Series Cricket

Scorecards and Statistics

Text size: A | A

The first season of World Series cricket was based entirely in Australia. Three teams - Australia, West Indies and a World side - competed in Supertests and one-day matches. Because there were too many players for the available matches, a secondary country tour took place, with some fringe players doubling up.

In 1978-79 the main matches were still in Australia and there was also a brief foray to New Zealand. In early 1979 the whole show moved to the Caribbean for a long tour of Tests and one-dayers. There were discussions about playing in Pakistan, India and England before Kerry Packer and the cricketing authorities reached a settlement in May 1979.
