Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) President Sharad Pawar is likely to be named chairman of the 2011 World Cup organising committee when it is constituted formally next month.

The board officials of the four Asian Test playing nations - India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh - are to meet in summer of resort of Bhurban in Pakistan from June 17 to 19 to constitute the committee.

It is for the first time that all the four Asian test playing nations would be hosting the World Cup.

Meanwhile, a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official said that they were yet to receive a formal itinerary from the BCCI for the team's tour of India later this year to play three Tests and six or seven one-day internationals.

"They will now inform us off the venues and dates they want us to play on for final approval," a PCB official said.

Pakistan is due to tour India from early November but sources said it has already requested the Indian board to not schedule matches at venues that require a lot of travelling as was the case on the 2005 tour.
