PCB serves legal notice to ICC over World Cup shift

Karachi:

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has served a legal notice to the International Cricket Council (ICC) over their decision to shift the 2011 World Cup matches out of the country due to security reasons.

PCB chairman Ejaz Butt said a legal notice was sent to the ICC on Saturday in protest against the decision and said if security was the reason for moving the World Cup matches out of Pakistan, then it was no better in Sri Lanka and India.

"We didn't want to and don't want to give useless statements on losing the World Cup matches. But I think our sending the ICC a legal notice is our way of protesting against this decision," Butt told a news conference in Lahore.

Butt said the board has also approached the Lusanne-based Court of Arbitration for Sports seeking justice.

"The ICC's decision to shift the matches was not correct in legal terms. And we have also approached the Court of Arbitration for Sports seeking justice," Butt said.
