Pakistan loses hosting rights for 2011 World Cup

The International Cricket Council(ICC) has announced that Pakistan will no longer be hosting matches at the 2011 Cricket World Cup.

I think this is hardly a surprising decision given what happened to the Sri Lankan cricket team but its good to see that the ICC has taken this decision with at least two years to go rather than at the last minute.

At the same time its also sad to see that Pakistan will miss out on hosting the matches in the 2011 World Cup and now it will be down to India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.

The ICC statement did not say how the 14 Pakistan matches will be shared among the remaining three hosts but I am sure we will hear more about it soon.
