India vs England World Cup Cricket 2011: Time and Venue

On Sunday (27 February), India and England are taking on each other in a Group B match of ICC World Cup 2011 in Bangalore. Both sides started off the tournament with victory, but a victory in Sunday’s match would prove to be a psychological booster for the winning side. So, India and England- both are determined to give their best in their bid to win the match.

Time and Venue

Sunday’s important day/night match between India and England will begin at 14:30 local time (09:00 GMT) at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore.

This match was originally scheduled to take place at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, but after the failure of the Cricket Association of Calcutta (CAB) to meet ICC’s deadline of preparing the ground, this match was shifted to M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Owned and operated by Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA), the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium is one of the most notable cricket grounds in India as well as in South Asia. It has a seating capacity of 50,000 crowds and is used as the home ground of Karnataka State Cricket Team and IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore. International cricket of all three formats- Test, ODI and T20- is being held regularly in this stadium.
