LAHORE - The 2011 World Cup, to be held in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, will be officially launched in Mumbai on Tuesday with the bigwigs of the International Cricket Council in attendance. The Pakistan Cricket Board will be represented by its director cricket operations Zakir Khan and chairman Ijaz Butt will not be attending the meeting. ICC CEO Haroon Lorgat and the 2011 World Cup Central Organising Committee Chairman and ICC Vice President Sharad Pawar would be present at the logo unveiling of the mega event, sources said. The organising committee, now headquartered in Mumbai, is also scheduled to meet before the formal launch. There were, however, speculation whether any representative of the PCB, which had been stripped off its hosting rights in the aftermath of the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan team at Lahore in March, would attend the meeting. The PCB on Sunday nominated its Director Cricket Operations Zakir Khan to attend only the logo unveiling ceremony. The ICC decided that no World Cup match would be held in Pakistan, originally scheduled to host 14 out of the 49 matches in the mega event, but the PCB would get its share of the financial spoils as the original hosts. The PCB chairman who should be attending the logo unveiling ceremony and a meeting of the central organising committee now stays away from the event, which is presumed as a protest over the ICC's double standards and instead Zakir will represent Pakistan in the meeting. The PCB chief will not attend the meeting, as the board is involved in legal proceedings against the ICC, a board official said. "Since we are in the process of having the ICC disputes resolution tribunal hear out appeal against the moving of the World Cup matches from Pakistan and we have also talked about a proper legal challenge against the ICC decision, we have to see what our lawyers say," a board official said. "PCB chairman and chief operating officer Salim Altaf were invited to attend the two events on July 14. We will do whatever our lawyers tell us to do because we don't want to damage our case in the ICC," he added. The PCB is fighting to regain hosting rights of its share of World Cup matches that were shifted to other host countries, India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh by the ICC executive board due to security concerns. But the PCB said since the security situation is the same in other host countries, Australia or New Zealand should host the 2011 World Cup and the 2015 event held at the sub-continent or the country be allowed to host its share of matches at neutral venues. Both proposals by the PCB have been rejected by the ICC and the other host countries who had, however, said Pakistan would get the entire hosting fee of $10.5 million for its share of World Cup matches. The PCB had also been told it would continue to remain a member of the central organising committee and a joint host of the mega event.
