England to open against Dutch
Tuesday 10 November 2009
England will begin their 2011 World Cup campaign against the Netherlands in Nagpur – three days after the six-week tournament gets under way with Bangladesh hosting India.
India will stage 29 of the 49 matches across eight venues including a quarter-final, a semi-final and the final at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
England, humbled by the Dutch in their first match of the ICC World Twenty20 at Lord's this year, will face them again in 50-over cricket on 22 February 2011.
They will then travel to Kolkata for their second match against India on 27 February. England are also due to face Ireland (Bangalore, 2 March), South Africa (Chennai, 6 March), Bangladesh (Chittagong, 11 March) and complete their group stage against West Indies (Chennai, 17 March).
