The 2011 World Cup matches taken off Pakistan due to security concerns will be staged by the three other co-hosts, the International Cricket Council board ruled Thursday.

The decision not to give the matches to a fifth location - such as the United Arab Emirates - further goes against the wishes of the Pakistan Cricket Board, which is pursuing legal action against cricket's governing body to regain its share of the tournament.

And since the PCB is being paid the US$10.5 million it would have received for staging the 14 limited-overs matches, the ICC also expects its officials to help organize the tournament in Bangladesh, India and Sri Lanka.

"A fifth country? The board considered that but it has decided the 14 matches originally allocated to Pakistan should take place in the three other Indian subcontinent countries of the full members," ICC president David Morgan said Thursday. "We need a recommendation from those four host nations, including Pakistan. They will come forward with the location of those matches to the commercial board of the ICC."
