Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium

Named after freedom fighter A K Fazlul Haq, the stadium is located just outside the Dhaka city centre and has capacity of 25,000 - the largest for a Bangladeshi stadium. The drainage facility at the ground is perhaps the best in the subcontinent. The venue will play host to a total of five World Cup 2011 matches beginning with the tournaments very first match between joint-hosts India and Bangladesh from Group B on Feb 19.

It will next feature for the 8th match, between Bangladesh and Ireland also from Group B, on Feb 25, followed by the tournament's 19th match, between Bangladesh and the West Indies on Mar 4. The final group stage match to be played here will be the 39th match, between Bangladesh and South Africa on Mar 19, before it hosts one of the four quarter-finals with the first Group team taking on the fourth Group B team. The stadium is perhaps the newest in the world, having been constructed as recently as 2007.
