Every day from 6 November to 13 February, a different moment will be announced on ICC's digital and social channels. The moments will be released in random order so that fans can decide for themselves the most memorable moments in cricket history.

Anyone can vote on the official Cricket World Cup website ( once voting opens or by using the unique Twitter hashtag that will be announced with each moment.

Every one of the 100 moments will only be open for voting for a 24 hour period, so fans will want to log-on every day to make sure they don't miss their favorite moment.

A Top 10 short-list of the Greatest World Cup Moments with the most votes will be announced on the morning of the first match of the tournament on 14th February when Sri Lanka face New Zealand in Christchurch.
