LAHORE - The International Cricket Council chief executive Haroon Lorgat came up with an unconvincing reply to criticism from certain quarters of its decision to relocate World Cup 2011 matches from Pakistan over security fears to India. In a statement on Tuesday, Lorgat insisted that the decision was unanimous at the organisation's board meeting last month. The decision was criticised by former ICC president Ehsan Mani, who termed it as "ill conceived and a hasty decision which was not on the agenda of the (last month's) Board meeting". "It's unfortunate that Mr Mani has chosen to make a public statement without full knowledge at his disposal. This is not correct that it was not on board meeting's agenda," Lorgat told reporters. "There was a long debate about it and it was a unanimous decision. We took the decision after involvement of all the member boards. "It is unfortunate that Pakistan would not be part of the World Cup 2011 hosts but we took the decision as a lot will base upon the success of the World Cup," said Lorgat.
