Bangalore, the IT capital of India, is home to major companies such as Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft and Intel. With astounding economic growth in recent years — its economy grew by more than 10% in 2008 — the city is often referred to as the Silicon Valley of India. Also known as Bengaluru and The Garden City, Bangalore has the third largest population in the country.
This is the third Cricket World Cup that Bangalore has hosted. Famous for its love of cricket and also producing major cricketing talent, Bangalore’s sporting centre is the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, with a 50,000 capacity.
