  • Also for Live Cricket Streaming: India vs England Live Streaming
The mayhem that just happened outside the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore which is playing host to this match shows how big a game this is. Fans are restlessly anticipating for a good match - and this one features India. Doesn't get bigger than this, does it?

The format of this World Cup is such that there are too many mismatches in the first round. How excited can one get about an India vs Netherlands or a England vs Ireland match? No wonder then that the few matches which involve two full members of the ICC are drawing all the eyeballs and streaming attention.

While the World Cup keeps producing an upset now and then, but yet, the quality of the cricket definitely suffers when there is one of the minnows playing. Can't blame them. All that I think is that this is not the CWC is not the right platform for them to show their wares. The earlier formula where the winner of the ICC Associate Trophy used to get to play was the right one.

Coming back to the India - England game tomorrow. As Andrew Strauss has said yesterday, "the pressure is going to be on India." Tens of thousands of supporters in the ground and the expectations of millions more outside really weighs on the shoulders of Sachin Tendulkar and the the other members of the other team.

The one mitigating factor would be that it is not really a do-or-die match. However, both teams would be keen to win the match as they would want to finish on top of the group and ideally meet New Zealand in the quarter-final.

So don't miss the live streaming of the India vs England World Cup Group B match tomorrow. Tune into Star Cricket at 9:00 am GMT.

World Cup 2011: England vs Netherlands Live Streaming

In an hour from now, the 2nd Group B match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 is all set to begin. It is going to be an all Europe affair as England will take on Netherlands. The live telecast of the match can be seen on Star Cricket. Start time is 2:30 pm Indian Standard Time. You may click here for further information on live streaming of the England Netherlands Match.

England have put up a good show in the warm-up matches leading to this Group Match winning both their fixtures. They especially impressed in their win over Pakistan, who are being seen as a dangerous team and the dark horse for winning the World Cup.

The England team would ideally want to win the toss and bat first today. This would allow their batsmen the right kind of match practise as it is likely that Netherlands may get skittled out quickly were they to bat first. That would leave the English batsmen with not much time on the wickets.

Watch the match live from 2:30 pm to find out how it eventually turns out.

World Cup 2011: India vs Bangladesh Live Streaming

Streets in Dhaka are abuzz with discussions on the Cricket World Cup 2011 which starts today in the Bangladesh capital. Go to any adda, and the only discussion you will find happening over a hot cuppa tea is that of the India vs Bangladesh match.

Fans here understand that India are a much stronger team, but there is an underlying confidence that they have in their team. Unlike the last time, when the India - Bangladesh match was being seen as a one sided affair (that India lost is a different matter), it is not so the case this time. This one is a much stronger team and with the home advantage, they can only be that much more dangerous.

The match starts in about a few hours from now. You can watch the match live in Bangladesh and India on both Star Cricket and ESPN. In India, Doordarshan will also show the match live. Want to watch the match live streaming? Search on the internet and you will find plenty of websites where you can watch the live cricket action from Dhaka.

Which team are you supporting? We are Indian fans here, but looking forward to some good hitting by Tamim Iqbal and Mohammad Ashraful. Sounds good? Why don't you share in the discussion?

Live Streaming of India vs New Zealand Warm-up Match

As I write, India are playing New Zealand in their second and final warm-up match to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011. India won the toss and chose to bat first. Star Cricket is telecasting the match live. You can head here for information on the Live Streaming of the India vs New Zealand Warm-up Match.

For a team that chases badly, I don't know if that was the good thing to do. May be it would have been a better idea for Dhoni to test out his batsmen in a chase. That would also have helped him finalize his crucial finishers. At the moment there is a toss up between Raina and Yuvraj for a slot in the team. More importantly, India need to finalize their batting positions.

Coming back to the match today, Tendulkar and Sehwag got our early after getting a start. Tendulkar scored 17 while Sehwag scored 23. Virat Kohli has just got out after steadying the Indian ship. He scored 59.

For New Zealand, Oram took 2 wickets while Southee claimed 1.

The current score is 148/3 off 29.1 overs. So New Zealand would know that India are well on the way to 300. That might be a tad too much for the Kiwis to chase down so they would be best off trying to gain a couple of wickets at this stage and stopping India to something in the range of 250 to 270.

Watch the Live Streaming of the Match via Star Cricket to find out how the rest of the match goes.

Live Streaming of India vs Australia Warm-up Match

ICC Cricket World Cup 2011: Live Streaming of India vs Australia Warm-up Match

In about 3 hours from now, India and Australia will take on the field at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore to start their campaign in the World Cup 2011. Not quite though!!

Today's match is only a warm-up match, and does not amount to much in terms of points or run rate. These warm-up games are only meant to give the participating fourteen teams valuable match practice ahead of the start of the serious group matches.

India have been placed in Group B along with England, South Africa, West Indies, Bangladesh and a a couple of non-test playing countries. Australia are in Group A, where the other teams include Pakistan, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Canada and the non-test teams.

STAR Cricket and Star Sports will telecast the match live in India. Click here for further information on the Star Cricket Live Streaming of India vs Australia Warm-up Match.

Even though this may only be a warm-up match, you can be pretty well sure that neither India, nor Australia will give each other any free space. Both sides are expected to come hard at each other, and will look to win the contest and gain the mental edge before the World Cup begins.

India are expected to open with Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag. Gautam Gambhir will follow at no.3. It will be of interest to see if Suresh Raina makes it to the batting XI today. ( Since it is a warm-up match 14 players are allowed to be a part of the match. However, only 11 batsmen can play and at any point only 11 fielders will be allowed on the field).

On the Australia side, their two main batsmen Ricky Ponting and Michael Clarke who have been out of form and runs recently will be keen to get some runs under their belt and regain their lost confidence. Ponting is also coming back after a finger injury so it remains to be seen if he has fully recovered from that.

Another thing is that both teams would want to ensure that no freak injuries take place. Therefore you can expect the fielding to be a bit light, with players not diving around much.

In the USA, you can follow the live streaming of the World Cup on Directv. In the UK, Sky Sports will telecast the event live. In Bangladesh, BTV will telecast the event besides STAR Cricket.
