The 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup will be the tenth Cricket World Cup and will be hosted by three South Asian Test cricket playing countries: India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. It will be Bangladesh’s first time co-hosting a Cricket World Cup. The World Cup will use cricket’s One Day International format, with fourteen national cricket teams scheduled to compete.

World Cup venues behind schedule


ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat has revealed that preparations at five of the host stadiums for the cricket World Cup are behind schedule.
However, Lorgat is confident all venues for the tournament in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh will be ready on time.
"I'm sure they will be ready," said Lorgat. "All of our reports do not indicate anything like what transpired during the Commonwealth Games."
The opening match between India and Bangladesh takes place on 19 February.
Of most concern is the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, which is to host the final on April 2, but which is still undergoing major renovations.

The stadiums are slightly behind, but they'll be done before the start of the World Cup
Haroon Lorgat ICC chief executive
There are similar problems at the 80,000-seat Eden Gardens in Mumbai.
Indian sport is still smarting from the debacle of last year's Commonwealth Games, when several teams threatened to pull out because of unfinished or substandard facilities.
However, the chief executive of the International Cricket Council is playing down any concerns.
"The stadiums are slightly behind," he said. "There are four in particular, but they'll be done before the start of the World Cup."
Lorgat also denied suggestions that the outcome of the spot-fixing hearings against three Pakistan players, due to be announced on 5 February, could tarnish the ICC's showpiece event.
"There is some time between the verdict and the start of the tournament," Lorgat added. "It is one of the reasons why we were keen to have it well before the start of the World Cup."
Lorgat would not discuss details of the case against Salman Butt, Mohammed Amir and Mohammed Asif, but expressed himself happy at the way the matter had been dealt with.

"I believe we have done very well to get to this position with a six-day tribunal that has sat and now we await a judgement," he said.
Lorgat also confirmed that the ICC would consider whether to introduce the Umpire Decision Review System in one-day internationals after it is trialled at the World Cup.
"We will be using it during the World Cup and post the World Cup we will consider it at the next committee meeting," he stated.
England and Australia will become the first sides to use the referral system in one-day internationals in their seven-match series which starts on in Melbourne on Sunday.

Not worried about the stadiums, one thing the sub-continent do well consistently is cricket

Be interesting to see the reaction to this event though. Almost no build up here in Oz at all. Could blame the crap nature of our team, but the switch in focus from ODI to T20 is rapidly gaining pace. Some are predicting this my even be the last ODI WC.

in any case, outside having to watch the Aussies lose, I'm looking forward to a good tournament, and have my shekels on India

there's hardly any build up for the World Cup in England either but that's probably because the teams have been playing some important tests. When and where is the opening match?

Wow so the opening ceremony will be in Bangladesh, should be really cool! Looking forward to the first match, both countries are cricket mad and the atmosphere should be electric. As good as India are wouldn't be surprised if Bangladesh did quite well considering it will be in their own back yard.

I somehow wish that India would host a Cricket World Cup by itself without any assistance from other countries.

I think india could, but Sri Lanka and Bangladesh couldn't.

See this IMO more as India reaching out than needing help

I don't know if this was mentioned but Eden Gardens has officially been withdrawn.

I'm sure this will rule India out of any world cup or olympics bid ever.

False. All that talk about CWG was before start of the games. The games were a big success without any untoward incident.

The Games were okay but everything was very last minute to the extent that teams were considering withdrawing and a few had to delay their arrivals. The problems and the fallout from this rush are still ongoing with arrests for fraud and internal investigations in India. Furthermore, international events organisers in the UK, Canada and Australia are losing a lot of money because the Indian Organising Committee STILL haven't paid them their dues for their roles in the ceremonies OR returned much of their equipment. The kind of companies Olympic host cities rely on - and which the IOC will ask questions of when considering future hosts - have had bad experiences of India. The Eden Gardens failure is yet another problem which won't warm the IOC to India. And that's sad.

India has a good - no, an excelllent - case for a future Olympics given its size and growing influence, but the more problems that happen, the harder they'll make it for themselves when bidding against nations with less risky plans.

Let's hope the world cup sans Eden Gardens (or at least without it for its biggest match) is a success for India.

Isn't Eden Gardens the biggest cricket stadium after the MCG? Really a pity that the Indian organizers messed it up.

Eden Gardens was going to be reduced to only 69k after this redevelopment.
