Cricket World Cup 2011: India vs. England Live Stream (Free Online Video)
Cricket World Cup 2011 Live Stream: Today’s match between England and host India in Bangalore is the biggest cricketing draw in recent times and both sides will be looking forward to extend their winning start to the competition. The original venue for the game was the Eden Gardens in Kolkata but it was moved to Chinnaswamy Stadium at the last moment as renovation work at the stadium was not completed in time.
The Poms defeated the Netherlands by six wickets in their 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup opener in Nagpur on Tuesday, while India overpowered Bangladesh by 87 runs in their opening match in Mirpur. This would be India’s first World Cup match in front of a home crowd and England skipper Andrew Strauss believes the pressure will be on the Men in Blue.
The expectations of home fans will be immense, and Strauss wants to spoil the Indian party. He said: “We need to play well – we’re under no illusions about that. But I think there’s a real vibe and excitement and enthusiasm about our guys that we hope we will bring to the pitch.” Unfortunately the last time they visited India in a ODI series in 2008, the Poms were thrashed 5-0.
Meanwhile, the stadium’s security has been beefed up and around 3,000 police officers will be deployed to avoid any untoward incident. The gates would be opened for public four hours before the match, and some special arrangements are being made for the security of international guests.
