by Nawshad P. Shah | February 6, 2011 3:10 am

The stage is ready for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 which will be jointly held in Bangladesh, India and Srilanka from 19th February – 02 April. The World cup is a prestigious event and being held in the sub-continent, where cricket is a passion, religion makes it a special event. Familiar home conditions, fanatical crowd support and a young energetic side give Bangladesh a chance to emerge from the shadows when the World Cup is played in their backyard.

The 43-day, 49 matches tournament will be played under a new format with India hosting a majority of matches (29), including the final in Mumbai. Bangladesh will host the spectacular opening ceremony on 17th February and 8 matches including 2 quarter finals. Interest in the World Cup is high in Bangladesh, as the cricket-crazy nation gears up to host the cricket’s showpiece for the first time.

Groups in which Cricket World Cup 2011 teams are divided:
Group A: Australia, Srilanka, Pakistan, New Zealand, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Canada.
Group B: India, South Africa, England, West Indies, Bangladesh, Ireland Netherlands.

The league stages will feature two groups of seven team, with the top four teams from each group progressing to the quarter finals stage (Knock-out). [Download Australia time Match Fixture & TV Schedule in PDF[1]]

The traditional formula will be followed to determine who plays whom in quarter finals, i.e. the team finishing at the top of Group A will meets the team finishing fourth in Group B (ie. A1 v B4, A2 v B3, A3 v B2, A4 v B1). But the 3 host nations will get to play their quarter final match at home venues, should they make it, irrespective of where they finish in their group.

Bangladesh will participate for the 4th time and have been placed in a very challenging group with India, South Africa, England and West Indies. They must defeat one of the established Test nations and ensure they do not slip-up against Ireland and the Netherlands to advance to the knock-out rounds. The advantage Bangladesh enjoy is they play all their six league matches at home in Dhaka and Chittagong, where they have won seven of their last 10 one-dayers and lost just once.

Expectation is sky high for the Bangladesh team to do well at home soil. A quarterfinal berth is the least millions of fans in the cricket-crazy nation will expect Shakib Al Hasan’s men to achieve, if not an unprecedented place in the semifinals.

Schedule of Bangladesh’s group matches are:
