The ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 was held in the sub-continent in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Pakistan did not get to host any of the matches because of terrorist activities on its soil. It was the third time after 1987 and 1996 that the sub-continent has hosted the Cricket World Cup. It was the first time that Bangladesh was hosting the Cricket World Cup matches.

Host nation India under the leadership of MS Dhoni went on to win the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 defeating Sri Lanka in the Final at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh bagged the Man of the Series award.

The ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 was the 10th edition of the Cricket World Cup. The tournament featured 14 teams that were divided into two pools equally. A total of 49 matches were played between 16th February 2011 to 2nd April 2011. India for the second time since 1983 had won the world cup. It was the first time that two Asian teams clashed against each other in a World Cup final. It was also the first time since 1996 that the Super Eights league was scrapped. The earlier World Cup in 2007 had been criticized to have been too long with too many insignificant matches.
