The countdown has begun! In another 37 days, the most awaited event, at least among the cricket playing nations, will start.

Despite Hyderabad not among the cities to host any matches in the World Cup Cricket 2011, the fans, however, are eagerly looking forward to check out the cricket matches.

Many have already started planning to travel to various host cities and attend World Cup cricket matches.

This year's World Cup has become even more interesting just because it will be closely followed by another high profile tournament, IPL 2011.

The World Cup 2011 final is on April 2 and the IPL will start from April 8.

The coming months, surely, are going to be very interesting, entertaining and thrilling for the average cricket fan in the twin cities.
