#11 Bangladesh ( ICC World Cup 2011)
The 10th edition of the ICC Cricket World Cup was played in 3 countries- India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. It was the first time that the ICC World Cup was hosted by Bangladesh. Few matches of the Bangladesh team were played in their home and the rest in India and Sri Lanka.
The Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium and the Zohur Ahmed Chowdhury cricket stadium were the two main grounds where the matches were organised in Bangladesh. In spite of having the home advantage, Bangladesh didn’t make it to the winning line as India lifted the 2011 World Cup.
