LAHORE - The Pakistan Cricket Board stayed away from the meeting of the 2011 World Cup organising committee that reconfirmed an earlier decision to redistribute the 14 games, originally scheduled to be held in Pakistan, among India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, the other co-hosts. The ICC had ruled out the possibility of holding Pakistan's matches at a neutral venue. The decisions were taken at a meeting of the ICC event's Central Organising Committee (COC) in Mumbai on Tuesday, to which the PCB had been invited as the fourth co-host. The ICC said a match schedule would be announced in due course and recommendations of Tuesday's meeting communicated to the ICC board. The ICC board had last month asked the organising committee to recommend alternative venues for Pakistan's matches after the PCB challenged the committee's earlier decision to redistribute its matches among the other co-hosts. The organising committee also reconfirmed all the decisions taken at the previous meeting in April, including shifting the event secretariat from Lahore to Mumbai, holding the final in India, the semi-finals in India and Sri Lanka, and distributing the quarter-finals among the three co-hosts with two of those matches going to Bangladesh. The ICC said: "Scheduling for the quarter and semi-finals will attempt to ensure that the host country will play at home should it qualify," the ICC said. "All venues for matches will be confirmed and announced in due course." The organising committee's latest decision effectively puts the lid on Pakistan's hopes of staging at least some of the 14 matches initially allotted to it in a neutral venue. In the meantime, the PCB is likely to press ahead with its legal challenge against the ICC's decision in April not to hold any World Cup matches in Pakistan due to the prevailing security situation in the country.
