ICC 2011 Cricket World Cup Groups & Fixtures


Yesterday saw the opening ceremony of the 2011 ICC Cricket World cup. It was a typically bright opening laden with fireworks, which we hope is a indicator of how exciting all of the matches are going to be.

The opening game will be between India and Bangladesh in the tournament hosted by Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and of course India. The final will be played on the 2nd of April in Mumbai hosting the final of the World cup. For the very first time all competing teams have been split into 2 different groups to ensure that at least a couple of big guns should be left in the tourney come the quarter finals.

The groups are as follows:

And the fixtures, so that you can plan the next month and a bit are (I can already hear some mooiness complaining about missing stuff on SABC3):
