Byline: ANI

Lahore, May 28 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has postponed its legal proceedings against the International Cricket Council (ICC) for shifting the 2011 World Cup matches from Pakistan.

According to sources, the PCB is hoping that the meeting with other co-hosts India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh scheduled to be held next week in Dubai, would yield some positive result.

"The ICC had also indicated that we hold our legal proceedings until this meeting and we are also confident of some positive outcome from it," the PCB's legal advisor Tafazzul Rizvi said.

Rizvi said the board would not hesitate to continue the legal battle in case the meeting fails to generate some positive outcome.

The PCB believes that the decision of not hosting World Cup games in Pakistan might be reversed after the meeting.

"The decision can be reversed and we will be given back our share of the World Cup matches," a PCB official said.

The meeting would be attended by the heads of the Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh cricket boards, the ICC President, Chief Executive and Sharad Pawar who will take over as the next ICC President, The Nation reports.

Meanwhile, the Lahore High Court has served a notice to the PCB over its discriminatory attitude against the Pakistan Women's Cricket Control Association (PWCCA)

The PCB has been accused of not providing adequate funds to the PWCCA while it has affiliated other cricket councils. (ANI)
