India and Bangladesh, two of the co-hosts, will contest the opening game of the 2011 World Cup in Mirpur on February 19. The fixtures were announced at an ICC event in Mumbai on Monday.

The first game in Sri Lanka will feature the hosts taking on Canada in Hambantota, a new venue, on February 20. Pakistan, who lost their share of World Cup matches due to the security situation in the country, are playing all six of their group matches in Sri Lanka, which is hosting a total of 12 games.

The tournament in India, which is hosting 29 matches in all, will kick off with New Zealand playing Kenya in Chennai on February 20. India's first home game is against England in Kolkata on February 27 and they will also play their four remaining group games at home. Defending champions Australia begin their campaign against Zimbabwe in Ahmedabad on February 21.

The quarter-finals will be played in Dhaka on March 23 and 25, in Colombo on March 24 and in Ahmedabad on March 26 while the two semi-finals will be played in Colombo and Mohali on March 29 and 30. The renovated Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai will host the final on April 2.

"This announcement is an important indicator of the excellent progress we are making towards our flagship event which brings together teams from all our Members in nation-versus-nation action," ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat said in Mumbai. "Preparation of venues and safety and security planning continues and I am confident that the host countries will showcase our great sport with its great spirit in the best possible light."

A total of 13 venues will be used over the 43-day tournament, which is a week shorter than the 2007 World Cup in the West Indies. The ten Full Member countries and four Associates have been divided into two groups of seven each, with the top four from each group qualifying for the quarter-finals. Group A includes Australia, Pakistan, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, Canada and Kenya. Group B comprises India, South Africa, England, West Indies, Bangladesh, Ireland and the Netherlands.

India, Ireland and the West Indies in Mirpur, and then England in Chittagong on (hopefully) a track where Ashraful would put Warney to shame. I say we win all four and start our journey to the championship with a BANG!

How come India agreed to play their WC opener in our backyard despite the horror of 2007? Daredevil? মামুর দিবানি খাওয়ার পর Daredevil হওয়ার মজা বুঝবে

It will be EXPLOSIVE! What makes it even more great is that it is on the day before my birthday and as it is a D/N match the match should run into the early hours of my birthday. And I hope to celebrate it with the sight of my beloved Tigers beating the Indians. I just have to be there...I don't care that it is on my A-Level year.

I saw it on NTV and ATN news as well. And it was on an Indian news channel as well.

Kudos to BCB. Very well negotiated. All our matches are at home and they didn't get intimidated and persuaded India to play in Dhaka. Well played Mr. Kamal and the rest of BCB! Now it's down to the boys to do the rest.

But hey, why only 5 matches? Aren't there 7 teams in both group A and B? So aren't we supposed to play 6 matches?

Edit: Yeah, exactly; where do we play South Africa?

Shyt...the timing of the grand event somehow totally slipped my mind. Got back only three months ago but there's no way in the world I'm gonna miss this once in a decade/two decade opportunity. Count me in too, inshallah

at any rate, i'll try to convice my fam to make a trip down there, cuz i'm planning on being done with the first leg of my schooling right around that time. i pray to god everything goes as planned, but perhaps i should log off now to increase the likelyhood of that!

Yeah same here with me man. I REALLY want to go and hopefully some of my cousins in BD will help me get around. The only problem is that its during the school year and I will be a Senior. I want to graduate with Honors but one of the requirements is that you cannot have more than 3 unexcused absences. I don't know if I could make it to BD, see the BD-IND match, and make it back to the US in 3 days. Unless the match is on a weekend but still it would be very tough to make all of this happen.

An alternate plan is to have a "Senior Skip day" type thing on the day of the match, buy the package from Dish Network or something, sit back and watch the match on a plasma, while having my laptop with me to post during the match. Hmm maybe I could cook some biryani as well...

Edit: Well actually I could just say I am sick. But that sometimes requires doctor's notes if I'm out for more than 2 days...
