The Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium has only just returned as an international venue, having been stripped of the right to host international cricket for one-year in January 2010.

An India v Sri Lanka one-dayer in December 2009 was called off inside 24 overs on a pitch that was too dangerous and the venue has not hosted another international.

International Cricket Council (ICC) pitch consultant Andy Atkinson has since been a regular visitor, monitoring the remedial work that for some time cast a shadow over Kotla's prospects of hosting World Cup matches.

However, there seem to be no major worries for the near 50,000 capacity ground where Anil Kumble took all 10 Pakistan wickets in an innings of a 1999 test.

Kotla will host four World Cup matches.
