Colombo: World Cup tournament director Ratnakar Shetty on Monday exuded confidence that the preparation for next year’s 50-over mega-event is on schedule and will be ready before the December 31 deadline.
Just 200 more days is to go before the opening match and Shetty said plans in all three host countries – India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh – were on track.
“The preparations for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 are on course and I’m happy with the progress we have been making,” Shetty said.
“Obviously, the readiness of the stadia is one of the key factors. The construction work is going ahead at a brisk pace which makes me confident that all the stadia will be ready by the end of this year,” he said.
