Only a Few Days Left for ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 to Begin

The opening ceremony of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 is going to be hosted in Bangladesh in the  Bangabandhu National Stadium in Dhaka, Bangladesh on 14th February, which is just two days prior to the beginning of the matches. This opening ceremony will mark the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 officially open for this year. The hosting countries for the World Cup Tournament are three South Asian countries, India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Reportedly, India would be hosting 22 matches, Sri Lanka 12, and Bangladesh 9.

Pakistan Stripped of Co-Host Status

Previously, Pakistan was also to co-host this mega event.  Almost 14 matches were to be hosted by Pakistan, and even a semi-final. However, after the attack on the Sri Lankan Cricket Team in Lahore, ICC decided to take away the hosting rights from Pakistan. The headquarters of the organizing committee of the World Cup 2011 was also stationed at Pakistan, but it was shifted to Mumbai for security reasons. Out of the 14 matches that were to be held in Lahore, Pakistan, eight matches are now going to be hosted by India while four have been assigned to Sri Lanka and two to Bangladesh.

The Participating Countries and the Umpires

The participating countries this year in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 Teams are Australia, Bangladesh,England, India, West Indies, South Africa, New Zealand, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, Ireland, Canada, Netherlands, and Kenya. The Umpires this year are in total 18 in number, excluding a Reserve Umpire, Enamul Haque, who will officiate the World Cup this year. Among them, 5 from Australia, 6 from Asia, 3 from England, 2 from New Zealand and 1 each from South Africa and West Indies.

Teams Waiting to Sway the Flag of Victory

The victorious countries after fighting for survival in the mega-marathon of cricket for 43 days will make it to the final of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 that will be held at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on April 2. The winner will be awarded the running trophy designed by Garrard & Co. The prize money this year is going to be US$ 3 million and US$ 1.5 million for runner-up.

The last phase of ticket sale is almost complete with the tickets made available locally and online. Now, it is just the time to sit back and watch the grand war of Cricket!
