Mohali:The strained relations between India and Pakistan follwoing Mumbai terror attacks will not affect the staging of 2011 World Cup in Asia, International Cricket Council (ICC) President David Morgan said on Sunday.
Morgan expressed hope the sub-continent would stage a great event and the cancellation of India's tour of Pakistan would not have any impact of the quadrennial event, which they host, along with Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
"There has to be some concern about the next World Cup which these four countries host. But we are confident that among them, we would have a good World Cup. We have learnt a lesson from the last World Cup and I'm sure the sub-continent would host a great World Cup," he said.
India's tour of Pakistan was scrapped after the government refused to give a go-ahead to it in the aftermath of Mumbai terror attack, which was carried out by the people from that country.
India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh will co-host the 2011 World Cup.
