What a news!! It means BD will play their world cup mathes at home in front of their own crowd. Preparation has to be started with a specific goal which will also cover the players and pitches.

Congratulations to everyone!!!!

Oh no! Australia should have got this!! This is so unfair!! I'm going to be 24 by 2011, and 28 by the time Australia have a shot at the next one!! I'll be too old to watch Cricket by then!! The votes been rigged!! :(

Bangladesh 20011 World Chapmpion!!!
What!! It's gonna' take us 18005 years to win a World Cup?? Sometimes you just wonder why we bother playing this game!! (Imagine if they somehow managed to win it in OUR lifetime - that'll be the day!!). :D

We will probably get some group matches, which doesn't involve two full members (except Bangladesh). We may not get any 2nd round match at all.

It's obvious that we will be playing our own games on home turf. I just hope that we get to host some other games, perhaps the ones involving the associate nations. Back in 96, SL got to play pretty much only their own games. I don't want BD to suffer the same.

Associate nations will be good but I really hope we at least host a couple of 2nd round games.

WOW. Great news. This will boost the economy of the country and of course cricket. Bangladesh needs to prepare and have to prove that we as good as India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka when it comes hosting cricket.

"It's simply a dream come true. It's a milestone in our sports history because nothing is comparable with a big event like a World Cup," said an excited Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) general secretary Mahbubul Anam over telephone.

"It's also a challenge for us but we want to surprise everybody. We have the ability to make a big event successful which we have already proved by hosting the Mini World Cup (now the Champions Trophy), Asia Cup and the Under 19 World Cup," said the bearded organiser, adding that Bangladesh would also host the 2014 Champions Trophy again.

Mahbub also informed that Bangladesh would get six matches in the meet, all of which will be held at one venue.

"We will host three first round matches involving Bangladesh and then three second round matches. All the matches will be held at the Mirpur Stadium. As per negotiations, in total 15 venues will be used for the tournament. India have eight, Pakistan four, Sri Lanka two and Bangladesh one," he said.

Also don't forget the 1998's Champions Trophy (then "Mini World Cup"). Still the best Champions Trophy arranged so far.

Great news indeed. But what is alarming is that the current officials deciding not one but three future WC tournaments. I'd have been more happy if they had left those far-future events to the hands of the then current officials to decide. What's the big rush, Mani?

Historic Day for Bangladesh cricket. Why only Mirpur? They should allot atleast 1 out of 6 matches elsewhere like in CHittagong although DHaka should get atleast 4 as it is the hub of Bangladesh cricket. I wish Bangabhandhu Stadium was there for this great event as undoubedtly thats our great cricket ground. :flag:

ABU DHABI — Besides the 2011 World Cup, the Indian subcontinent will also host the 2023 and 2035 tournaments as per the new International Cricket Council (ICC) rotation policy, says former Indian Board President I.S. Bindra.

"The rotation policy been settled and agreed, and we are very happy. Every third World Cup will come to the Asian subcontinent," Bindra, who attended Sunday's crucial ICC board meeting where the subcontinent was awarded the 2011 World Cup, said.

"The 2023 and 2035 World Cup will come to the Asian subcontinent. But obviously, every time you have to submit a compliant bid (answering the ICC Compliant Manual)," said Bindra, who had also masterminded India's successful joint bids for the 1987 and 1996 World Cups. <O:p</O:p
