Pakistan confident of hosting 2011 World Cup matches

KARACHI (Reuters) - The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will submit new proposals to get back its share of 2011 World Cup matches at a meeting called by the International Cricket Council in Dubai on June 3.

PCB chairman Ejaz Butt said he was confident the meeting would produce positive results.

"We are open to all options. We just want our World Cup matches back," Butt told Reuters on Thursday.

Pakistan mounted a legal challenge against the ICC executive board decision in April to move World Cup matches out of Pakistan due to security concerns.

"Pakistan has been invited to this meeting which we see as a positive," Butt said.

Butt said Pakistan's second option would be to hold games at neutral venues such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi or Malaysia.

Pakistan, originally scheduled to host the tournament along with India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, stands to lose around $11 million in rights fees if it does not stage its share of 14 matches.
