The Australia national cricket team is the joint oldest team in Test cricket history, having played in the first ever Test match in 1877. The team plays One Day International (ODI) cricket and Twenty20 International (T20I), participating in both the first ODI, against England in the 1970–71 season, and the first T20I against New Zealand in the 2004–05 season, winning both games. The Australian cricket team, nicknamed as the 'Kangaroos', draw its players from domestic cricket competitions - the Sheffield Shield, the Australian domestic limited-overs cricket tournament and the Big Bash League. As of 2018, Australia has played 911 ODI matches, winning 556, losing 312, and drawing 9, with 34 ending in no-result. The team has made a record seven appearances in the World Cup final; 1975, 1987, 1996, 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2015, and have won the World Cup a record five times in total; 1987, 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2015. Australia is the first team to appear in four consecutive World Cup finals (1996, 1999, 2003 and 2007), surpassing the old record of three consecutive World Cup appearances by West Indies (1975, 1979 and 1983) and the first team to win 3 consecutive world cups (1999, 2003 and 2007). It is also the second team to win a World Cup (2015) on home soil, after India (2011).
