Pakistan ends battle over World Cup hosting

7:04 am on 15 August 2009

Pakistan has given up on its legal battle with the International Cricket Council over hosting of the 2011 World Cup.

Pakistan started legal proceedings against the ICC after being stripped of its World Cup games in April because of security concerns, but the Pakistan Board is now heavily in favour of settling the issue out of court.

Games will be hosted by India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
