ICC Cricket World Cup 2011
We know that the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 is going to be hosted by India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. This is the first time that Bangladesh has gained the opportunity to host such a show piece event, we are also very proud and honoured. Another positive thing is that the Bangladesh National Cricket Team has made its way to the 14 nation tournament out of 104 Cricket playing entrants.
Hosting the 3rd biggest sporting event is an opportunity to boost a country's tourism potentials and a chance to promote the nation's economic aspects by attracting foreign investment.
The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) and Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) launched a public road show called 'Catch Bangladesh Catch' around the country in all 64 districts. I would like to thank the LOC and BCB for its efforts to make the World Cup a success. I wish good luck to our Tigers, they always have our support.
