The Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ejaz Butt says they'll host an international team in the next six to nine months and will still co-host the 2011 World Cup.

Butt was speaking following the militant attack on the Sri Lanka team bus in Lahore last week in which seven people were killed and six members of the Sri Lankan team injured.

Butt says he wants to get security to a level that will be a guarantee from the government that no such incident like this could happen again, or I will not invite anybody.

He says he definitely thinks they will stage part of the World Cup in 2011
