Cummins Power Generation and Trade Promoters Limited (TPL) are providing power for the floodlights at all three stadiums used for the 2011 Cricket World Cup in Sri Lanka. The tournament ranks fourth among the world's most-viewed sporting events. The floodlights enable the matches to be played at night.
The 2011 Cricket World Cup is being played in Bangladesh, India, and Sri Lanka, from February 12 to April 2. The three venues in Sri Lanka are R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo; Muttiah Muralitharan International Cricket Stadium in Kandy; and Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium in Hambantota. The stadiums in Kandy and Hambantota were constructed specifically for the World Cup.
