Pakistan Wants Series Against ICC World XI

KARACHI (Reuters) - Pakistan's cricket authorities have proposed a fund-raising one-day series in England next year against a world XI selected by the International Cricket Council (ICC) after failing to attract teams to play in Pakistan because of security fears.

The idea was proposed by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ejaz Butt during a meeting with the ICC special task force on Pakistan in Dubai last week, Ramiz Raja, a member of the task force, told Reuters.

"There was discussion on the need for Pakistan to keep on playing international cricket and find ways to help it raise funds," Raja said, adding that the proposed series would probably be discussed by the ICC's executive board when it met in Dubai early next year.
