Pakistan has decided to end its legal battle against cricket's governing body over being stripped of its share of World Cup 2011 matches, an official said Thursday. The decision came after a meeting of the governing board of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) decided to opt for an out-of-court settlement with the International Cricket Council (ICC). "We have decided 90-95 percent that the matter of the World Cup 2011 will be settled out-of-court as Pakistan remains the co-host of the mega event. The legal course has ended," PCB chairman Ijaz Butt told a press conference. Pakistan officials will still work behind-the-scenes at the World Cup. Pakistan initiated a legal case against the ICC after being stripped of its World Cup 2011 matches in April.
