    SUMMARY OF FINAL MATCH
    1975 Cricket World Cup final was played between Australia and West Indies. Australia was chasing a victory target of 292 runs and fell short by 17 runs in the 1975 Cricket World Cup final. 1975 Cricket World Cup final was nicely poised when the last Australian pair was playing. The Australian fast bowling duo of Jeff Thomson and Dennis Lillee were the last two Aussie batsmen, attacking the West Indian bowlers with courage. They’ve already added 41 runs for the last wicket and at one stage seemed to steal the 1975 Cricket World Cup final from the jaws of West Indies.
    There was no Man of the Series award in the Cricket World Cup 1975, as it was the first Cricket World Cup. The Man of the match award in the 1975 Cricket World Cup final was given to Clive Lloyd. Only 18 ODIs were played before the first Cricket World Cup - Cricket World Cup 1975. The first Cricket World Cup was an instant hit among the spectators.
