    Default World Cup 2011: Hosts to play at home in knock-out

    Follow us on Social Media

    Host nations for World Cup 2011 India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh- will enjoy home advantage in knock-out stages, albeit only if they manage to reach there.

    The rather unusual schedule means that any host nation reaching knock-out stage in World Cup 2011 will host its own match and enjoy home advantage. However, if two host nations have to face each other in a knock-out stage match, the team with higher ranking will be given the honors to host the match. It has to be noted that these rankings have already been finalized.

    Reports about this schedule have been confirmed by the ICC and this will mean that schedule of the knockout stages will not be clear till the league matches in the World Cup get completed and the final word on their qualification for league stages is out.

    Take for instance, India playing against Sri Lanka or Bangladesh in quarter-finals. Since India has a higher ranking above both teams, it will host the quarter final match. Similar will be the case if Sri Lanka clash against Bangladesh or any other team. Bangladesh in turn, will get to host its quarter-final match against any other team except India and Sri Lanka.
