India to bid for '11 cricket World Cup
10/8/2005
 

          NEW DELHI, Oct 7 (AFP): India will make an aggressive bid to host the 2011 cricket World Cup in the sub-continent when the International Cricket Council (ICC) meets in Sydney next week, a top official said Friday.
Asian cricket chief Jagmohan Dalmiya, a former ICC president, said he would formally propose at the ICC's executive board meeting Monday that the sub-continent, which comprises four Test nations, hold every third World Cup.
"I am told that Australia is a strong contender for the 2011 World Cup, but we will make a strong pitch for it," Dalmiya said.
"Not only four of the 10 Test-playing nations-India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh-are from the sub-continent, but the region generates the maximum funds for world cricket," he said.
