    Pakistan to host 2011 World Cup matches: Butt

    LONDON: Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ijaz Butt said on Sunday his country could host an international team in the next six to nine months and will still co-host the2011 World Cup.

    In an interview with foreign radio, Butt said: "I would expect teams will tour here again as soon as possible. I would give it six to nine months to get things organised."

    "I would want us to get security to a level that would be a guarantee from my government that no such incident like this could happen again, or I will not invite anybody.

    "Once I have this assurance I may then invite people to comehere. But this can happen anywhere. I cannot give that guarantee, but my government can. If they cannot then we willnot have cricket in Pakistan at all.

    I definitely think that we will stage part of the World Cup in 2011."

    Butt said he disagreed with match referee Chris Broad who said there had not been enough security to protect players and officials.

    Former England batsman Broad was travelling in the officials'' bus behind the Sri Lanka team.

    "I totally disagree with Chris Broad, he is overdoing it. And it is wrong if they (the International Cricket Council) are siding with one man''s opinion. I have told them that this opinion is totally wrong," Butt said.
