Dubai:

The 2011 World Cup matches may have been shifted out of Pakistan but the country's cricket officials will attend an ICC meeting to discuss the "ongoing issues" surrounding the hosting of the event on June 15 in London.

The meeting, between ICC officials and representatives of joint hosts Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, was to be held in Dubai on June 3 but has been re-scheduled to ensure availability of all those taking part.

The meeting comes in the wake of Pakistan Cricket Board's decision to take legal action against the ICC that shifted the World Cup matches out of the country due to security concerns.

"I am grateful to everyone for agreeing to come together to work through the ongoing issues surrounding the hosting of matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011," Morgan said in a statement on Friday.

"I hope that, through discussion, we will be able to reach a resolution to this matter as soon as possible. It is a matter that is diverting resources and energy that could be spent elsewhere as, with less than two years to go before the event, we need to be conscious that time is passing.

"The sooner we reach that resolution, the sooner everyone can proceed with the business of concentrating our efforts on working towards a successful event in 2011."

ICC President David Morgan and Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat will also be in attendance, while ICC Vice-President Sharad Pawar will take part via telephone.
