Cricket World Cup 2011: Fourteen countries will compete for Cricket championship in Cricket World Cup 2011 from Feb 19, 2011 to Apr 2, 2011 in the Indian sub-continent. India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh will host 49 matches. Pakistan was removed from the group of hosting countries due to safety concerns. Terrorism is costing Pakistan much more.

Here's where the action will be...India is hosting the most number of matches (including the finals in Mumbai) and comes alive during cricket matches. I'm trying hard to be there for those 6 weeks to witness live matches
29 matches
Ahmedabad - 3
Bangalore - 4
Chandigarh - 3
Chennai - 4
Delhi - 4
Kolkata - 4
Mumbai - 3
Nagpur - 4
Sri Lanka
12 matches
Colombo - 7
Kandy - 3
Hambanthota - 2
8 matches
Chittagong - 2
Dhaka - 6
