Lahore, July 3 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is unlikely to participate in the meeting with the three hosts of the 2011 World Cup India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, to discuss and sort out the hosting rights issues.

The meeting, slated to be held in Mumbai on July 16, has been called to discuss the issues regarding the hosting rights of the 2011 World Cup after the ICC decided to shift the world cup games from Pakistan to other host countries citing security reasons.

According to sources, the former ICC President Ehsan Mani and PCB chief Ijaz Butt met to discuss whether the PCB should participate in the meeting or not.

Mani believed that participating in the meeting may weaken Pakistan's stand and its legal case against the ICC, sources said.

However, Butt expressed unawareness regarding any meeting being called in Mumbai.

"Where did you come to know of the date for this meeting when we are still waiting to hear of it.We will be taking a decision about our participation after receiving a formal invitation from the three hosts," The Dawn quoted Butt, as saying. (ANI)
