ICC President David Morgan on Tuesday indicated that Pakistan Cricket Board would desist from taking legal action against the governing body for shifting the 2011 World Cup matches out of the strife-torn country after meeting PCB Chairman Ejaz Butt in Dubai.

Both Morgan and Butt will report back to their respective boards before meeting again soon, while PCB's legal proceedings would continue to be adjourned pending future meetings, the ICC said in a statement.

Butt met Morgan at the ICC s headquarters here as part of an ongoing process to resolve the disagreement over the location of the 14 matches originally scheduled to be played in Pakistan, as well as the venue for the tournament secretariat, which was set to be in Lahore.

"I am pleased to have had the opportunity to meet with Ejaz this morning and we had a very positive 90-minute meeting. We are making good progress on the issues of dispute between us," Morgan said.

"I will now report back to the other members of the ICC's Board on the nature of our discussions ahead of further talks between the two of us.
