LAHORE - After slapping ICC with a legal notice for stripping them off the 2011 World Cup matches, Pakistan Cricket Board is now seeking help of Asian neighbours to get back the matches of the quadrennial event. PCB chairman Ijaz Butt will meet former BCCI president Sharad Pawar for talks and they are optimistic of getting support. "The Chairman has gone to Sri Lanka and is now in India as part of our strategy to let our Asian neighbors know we are still counting on their support and that we need their support to get back the World Cup matches," Saleem Altaf, Chief Operating Officer of the PCB, said. Altaf said Butt will request Pawar to invite Pakistan to future World Cup organising committee meetings. The next one apparently is scheduled for May 27. Pakistan had challenged the ICC decision of shifting of matches as well as moving the World Cup central secretariat from Lahore to Mumbai. Altaf said Butt will also visit Bangladesh later in the month to garner support. "We want our Asian neighbors to know that we have used legal action as a last resort but we are open to alternatives and are still very much part of the World Cup organising committee and one of the host nations," he said.
