ICC World Cup 2011 Groups & Schedule

2011 would be a cricket year. Other than lots of home and away cricket, ICC world cup 2011 is also around the corner.

It might also be the last world cup of Sachin Tendulkar, so a must watch.

As the world cup days are approaching there are already terror threats on it and the cup has been insured for whooping Rs 600 Crore.

Before it actually starts, let’s bookmark the grouping and the fixture of the Cricket World Cup 2011.
