There were two one-day tournaments in Australia that season in 1984/85. One was the World Series Cup featuring Australia, West Indies and Sri Lanka. The other one was the World Championship of Cricket, which was held straight afterwards and featured all 7 of the Test nations. It was treated as a Mini World Cup...we got destroyed though :P
