South Africa may not have won the World Cup but they won the mini version when they beat West Indies by 4 wickets in Dhaka in 1998 during the inaugural edition.
Boosted by a century by Chris Cairns, New Zealand beat India by 4 wickets in Nairobi in 2000 to win their only ICC event till date.
Rain forced the final and the replay into a no-result in Colombo meaning that India and Sri Lanka had to share the 2002 edition of the tournament, the only time two teams have shared the trophy.
A ninth wicket partnership of 71 between Courtney Brown and Ian Bradshaw saw West Indies to a 2-wicket win over England at Lord's in the 2004 final.
The 2006 final was a one-sided contest as Australia bowled West Indies out cheaply and won with 8 wickets in hand in Mumbai.
Australia successfully defended their 2006 title in 2009 as Shane Watson's 105 not out took them home by 6 wickets against New Zealand in Centurion.
