6:29 am on 16 May 2009

A suggestion from the former head of the International Cricket Council that the 2011 World Cup be moved to New Zealand and Australia hasn't been welcomed by offcialdom here.

The ICC's already removed Pakistan as one of the co-hosts of the 2011 tournament, but Ehsan Mani, a former ICC president and head of the Pakistan Cricket Board believes New Zealand and Australia, who're the co-hosts of the 2015 event, swap with the Asian nations.

New Zealand CEO Justin Vaughan says that simply wouldn't suit them.
