Pakistan's World Cup challenge ends

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has rejected Pakistan's legal challenge against its decision to move 2011 World Cup matches out of the country for security reasons.

Pakistan had been scheduled to stage the event with India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh but the ICC opted to redistribute the matches among the other three nations after gunmen attacked the Sri Lankan team bus on March 3 in Lahore, wounding six players and their assistant coach.

Six policemen and a van driver were killed in the incident.Given that fact, we need to deliver a tournament that is safe, secure and, above all, successful and it was on that basis the decision was taken that matches could not be played in Pakistan.
