Sri Lanka 2011 Cricket World Cup
The ICC 2011 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. There will be over 43 days of cricket with 14 countries competing for the World Cup title.

The World Cup will take place during February and March 2011. Opening the tournament on 19 February, hosts Bangladesh and India meet in Dhaka, Bangladesh - the first of a total of 49 cricket matches to be played in the ICC Cricket World Cup. It will be Bangladesh's first time co-hosting a Cricket World Cup. The 2011 World Cup will also allow the non-Test Cricketing sides to compete.
