    India meet Bangladesh in 2011 World Cup opener

    Last updated on: November 10, 2009 10:54 IST


    [​IMG]Revenge will be foremost on India's [ Images ] mind when they square up against hosts Bangladesh in Dhaka in the opening match of the 2011 World Cup on February 19.
    It was Bangladesh who shocked India by five wickets -- which eventually brought about their early exit from the last edition of the tournament -- and Mahendra Singh Dhoni [ Images ] and his boys will surely be keen to settle scores.
    Defending champions Australia [ Images ], winners of the the last three editions of the Cup, are placed in Group A and start their title defence against minnows Zimbabwe in Ahmedabad [ Images ] on February 21.
    A total of 49 matches will be played in the 43-day tournament tournament, which was reallocated following the International Cricket Council's [ Images ] decision to drop Pakistan as a co-host because of security concerns.
    India will host 29 matches at eight venues, including the final at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai [ Images ], a semi-final in Mohali and a quarter-final in Ahmedabad, while Sri Lanka [ Images ] will stage 12 matches at three venues, including a semi-final in Colombo and a quarter-final.
    The Opening Ceremony will be held on February 17, in Dhaka, which, besides the opening match, will also stage two quarter-finals and six group matches.
    International Cricket Council chief executive Haroon Lorgat [ Images ] is hoping the shorter format and reduction in number of teams would boost spectator interest after the last tournament was criticized as being too long and boring.
    "The tournament has been made shorter with just 14 teams involved two lesser than last time while it is also shorter than the last event by a week," Lorgat said in Mumbai on Monday at the launch of the schedule.
    ICC [ Images ] vice-president Sharad Pawar [ Images ], who is also the chairman of the Central Organising Committee of the 2011 World Cup, assured that all the venues will have top class facilities for players, spectators and the media.
    "We have allotted 50 crores to all the stadiums in India to be ready for the 2011 World Cup. Let me assure you that India will be ready for the World Cup. Wankhede stadium will be built and ready in time and I can assure you that all the stadiums will be spectator friendly and also player friendly and will boast of being the state of art stadiums," Pawar said.
    This will be the third World Cup in the country after the 1987 World Cup that India hosted and the 1996 World Cup co-hosted by Pakistan, Sri Lanka and India.
    Pakistan will play all their group matches in Sri Lanka. They begin their campaign against Kenya on February 23 in Hambantota, one of the two new venues in Sri Lanka. However, if they make it to the final, to be played at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on April 2, Pawar said the Indian fans would be glad to welcome them despite a thaw in relations between the two countries currently following the terror attacks in Mumbai last November.
    "There is no exception whether it is Pakistan or any other team. I am confident the sport loving population of this country will welcome anybody who reaches the final," he said.
    The first match in India will see New Zealand [ Images ] taking on Kenya in Chennai on February 20, while India's first match in front of home fans is against England [ Images ] at Kolkata [ Images ] on February 27.
    The top four teams from each group progress to the quarter-finals, which will be played in Dhaka on March 23 and 25, in Colombo on March 24 and in Ahmedabad on March 26.
    The two semi-finals will be played in Colombo and Mohali on March 29 and 30 respectively with the under-construction Wankhede stadium in Mumbai scheduled to host the all-important final on April 2.
    The groupings:
    Group A: Australia, Pakistan, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, Canada [ Images ], Kenya
    Group B: India, South Africa [ Images ], England, West Indies [ Images ], Bangladesh, Ireland, Netherlands.

    WI face SA in first World Cup Test

    Published on: 11/10/2009.



    WEST INDIES have opponents in the form of South Africa in their opening match of the 2011 World Cup that will be hosted by India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
    The Pool "B" match will be played on February 24 in New Delhi.
    It will be the seventh game of the tournament which will be one week shorter than the 2007 World Cup in the Caribbean.
    West Indies' remaining group matches will be against Netherlands on February 28, against Bangladesh on March 4, against Ireland on March 11, against England on March 17 and against India on March 20.
    The four teams from the two pools will advance to the quarter-finals from March 23 to 26.
    The semi-finals will be played on March 29 and March 30 in Colombo and Mohali and the final on April 2 in Mumbai.
    In announcing the itinerary yesterday, International Cricket Council (ICC) chief executive officer Haroon Lorgat said it was an important indicator of the excellent progress that was made towards their flagship event.
    "The World Cup 2011 will be the ICC's next 50-over tournament after the highly successful Champions Trophy 2009 in South Africa," Lorgat said.
    "And with plenty of high-quality matches played since that event concluded last month, I'm convinced that the World Cup in the sub-continent will further cement the status of ODIs and once again illustrate one of cricket's greatest strengths - that with Tests and Twenty20 Internationals alongside ODIs, we have three viable, vibrant and successful formats of the game at international level."
    Four-time winners Australia will begin their defence of the title against Zimbabwe in Ahmedabad on February 21.
    Co-hosts Bangladesh and India will go head to head in the opening match of ICC's flagship tournament on February 19 in Dhaka, two days after the same city stages the opening ceremony.
    A total of 49 matches will be played with India hosting 29 matches, including the final, a semi-final and a quarter-final, Sri Lanka 12 matches, including a semi-final and a quarter-final, and Bangladesh eight matches, including the opening matches, and two quarter-finals.
    During the 43-day event spread over three countries, a total of 13 venues will be used. (HG/PR)

    India would welcome Pakistan for WC final: Pawar
    Last Updated on Tuesday, November 10, 2009, 11:39 IST


    [​IMG] Zeecric Bureau

    Mumbai: Sharad Pawar, chairman of 2011 World Cup Organising Committee, said that despite the tension between the two nations, Pakistan would surely be welcomed in India if they reach the final of the mega-event.

    The final match of the 2011 Cricket World Cup would be played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, and Pawar is confident that Pakistan would surely be one of the final contenders of the coveted trophy.

    Relations between the Indian and Pakistan governments were strained after the fateful terror attack in Mumbai, following which, bilateral cricket ties between the countries were called off.

    [​IMG]
    India’s tour to Pakistan, which was scheduled for early 2009, was cancelled and Pakistan players were not allowed to travel to India for the second season of the Indian Premier League, or any event, as for that matter.

    [​IMG]
    Pawar, however, added that the situation this time round would be different and the Indian government would surely welcome Pakistan cricket team to the country if they make it to the final of an event like the World Cup.

    “There is no exception whether it is Pakistan or any other country,” Pawar said after the 2011 World Cup fixtures were announced in Mumbai. “I am confident the sport-loving population of this country [India] will welcome anybody who reaches the stage [the final].”

    When Pawar was asked if the organisers were planning to give a common visa to fans to travel across India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, the way CARICOM did during the 2007 World Cup, he said, “That is a suggestion. We are discussing this with the government to offer a common visa for all three countries hosting the event.”

    Good decision to host Pakistan's World Cup matches in Lanka: Former players

    PTI 9 November 2009, 10:30pm IST









    KARACHI: Former players and officials, on Monday, welcomed the orgainsers decision to schedule all the league matches of Pakistan in the 2011
    World Cup in Sri Lanka, saying not playing in India was in the best interest of both the nations.

    "It is best for our team that they are not playing their World Cup matches in India when relations between both countries continue to be tense," former captain Inzamam-ul-Haq said.

    "It means that the World Cup will not become a political instrument if the relations between India and Pakistan remain tense during the tournament," added Inzamam, who is Pakistan's most capped player.

    Former Test batsman Basit Ali said it was disappointing to see Indian fans being robbed off the opportunity to witness Pakistani players in action.

    "But perhaps it is best for us to play our group matches in Sri Lanka. Hopefully by then conditions would have improved and if we qualify for knockout stages then we can play in India," he said.

    Sources in the PCB said chairman Ejaz Butt had not pressurized the ICC against scheduling Pakistan's matches in India.

    "No but I think the ICC also realised keeping in view the existing relations it would be best to avoid any problems at the time of the tournament although there is still 13 months left for the event to take place," a Pakistan Cricket Board source said.

    Cricket relations between India and Pakistan have been affected after last November's Mumbai terror with the India canceling a scheduled Test tour of the troubled nation early this year.

    Subsequently, the Pakistan government stopped its players from taking part in the second Indian Premier League which was later shifted to South Africa earlier this year.

    Another former skipper Rashid Latif said from cricketing and logistical point of view it was good that Pakistan would be based in Sri Lanka.

    "We have a good track record in Sri Lanka but the only worry is that we will be playing at two new venues like Pallekele and Hambantota.

    "But we are in a tough pool with Australia, Sri Lanka and New Zealand so it is going to be a tough tournament," Latif said.

    Latif also noted that with Pakistan playing in Sri Lanka, Pakistani supporters would not face problems travelling top the island country.

    "Travelling would have been difficult for Pakistanis if we had to play in India," he said.

    Former chief executive of the PCB Arif Abbasi pointed out that given the bad blood created between the two nations, it was a sensible decision on ICC and organiser's part to keep Pakistan's group matches in Sri Lanka.

    However, he expressed disappointment that fans back home would not be able to see World Cup matches in Pakistan.

    England to begin with Holland rematch
    (UKPA) – 16 hours ago
    England will begin their 2011 World Cup campaign against Holland in Nagpur - three days after the six-week tournament gets under way with Bangladesh hosting India.
    England, famously humbled by the Dutch in their first match of the ICC World Twenty20 at Lord's this year, will face them again in 50-over cricket on February 22, 2011.
    They will then travel to Kolkata for their second match against India on February 27.
    Bangladesh will host India in the tournament opener, the International Cricket Council announced on Monday.
    India is set to stage 29 of the 49 matches across eight venues, including a quarter-final, a semi-final and the final at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
    Sri Lanka will stage 12 matches - including a quarter-final and a semi-final - while Bangladesh will host the opening ceremony on February 17 and the remainder of the matches, including two quarter-finals.
    Sri Lanka will unveil two new venues during the course of the tournament - Hambantota and Pallekele - and will take on Canada in their first match at Hambantota on February 20.
    Pakistan, stripped of their hosting rights because of security concerns, will play all their group matches in Sri Lanka and will need to travel to India only if they reach the knockout rounds.
    Champions Australia will begin the defence of their title against India in Ahmedabad on February 21 and will play all their group matches in India - avoiding Sri Lanka, a country they refused to play in during the previous World Cup in the sub-continent.
    ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat said: "I'm convinced that the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 in the sub-continent will further cement the status of ODIs and once again illustrate one of cricket's greatest strengths - that with Tests and Twenty20 internationals alongside ODIs, we have three viable, vibrant and successful formats of the game at international level."

    Three spinners in India's World Cup squad, Rohit Sharma dropped


    NEW DELHI: India included three spinners and dropped Rohit Sharma in their final 15-member squad for the ICC cricket World Cup selected by the five-member selection panel led by K Srikanth in Chennai on Monday.

    The list of 30 probables were pruned to half and no big star is left out of the final squad for the mega-event starting February 19.

    The top-seven of the Indian batting-order -- Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina and MS Dhoni -- are in the team as expected and Yusuf Pathan take the all-rounder's berth.

    The inspirational Zaheer Khan lead the pace attack and his pacer partners will be the trio of Ashish Nehra, Munaf Patel and Praveen Kumar. S Sreesanth and Ishant Sharma failed to make the cut.

    Harbhajan Singh will spearhead the slow bowling department with Piyush Chawla and R Ashwin as his spin partner. Amit Mishra and Pragyan Ojha were also vying for the slot.

    Just a day before the selection meeting, doubts have arisen over Sachin Tendulkar's availability after he pulled out of the remainder of the ODI series in South Africa as a precautionary measure after sustaining a hamstring injury during Saturday's second match.

    But going by indications, the injury is not serious and Tendulkar will be making his sixth World Cup appearance.

    Squad

    Mahendra Singh Dhoni (capt/wk),
    Virender Sehwag,
    Sachin Tendulkar,
    Gautam Gambhir,
    Virat Kohli,
    Yuvraj Singh,
    Suresh Raina,
    Harbhajan Singh,
    Zaheer Khan,
    Munaf Patel,
    Praveen Kumar,
    Yusuf Pathan,
    Piyush Chawla,
    R Ashwin,
    Ashish Nehra.

    Am I the only one who feels that Ashwin is included in team at expense of Rohit sharma . With Yuvraj and Raina both having bad forms Rohit should have been in the squad .

    Pretty much an expected squad. Dhoni wanted Chawla and not Ashwin. Rohit Sharma has been a bit of a disaster at the international level though he has loads of talent. His ODI average is 28. sachin and veeru both will play. They pulled out of the current series so that they can get fit for the WC. My only concern is a fragile middle order with a lot depending on Yuvraj, Raina and pathan along with the skipper. I hope all are in form during the WC. All the best Team India.

    What is Yuvraj doing in the squad? Dinesh Kartick is better and in form, we need an extra WK too. Rohit Sharma should also have been in the squad.

    Bro you cannot compare apple with Orange . Yuvraj and Dinesh Karthik both belong to diffrent class and calibre. Also I feel Rohit sharma was scarificed to allow Ashwin. Why is it that every team have one to two members who donot deserve the place in team except that chief selector want one or two of his candidates in the team.
