Islamabad -  The International Cricket Council has told the Pakistan Cricket Board that a team comprising of international players cannot call itself a World XI in Karachi this weekend.

ICC spokesperson Samiul Hasan told The Associated Press in a text message that it "doesn't permit the names of World or World XI for exhibition matches" and a letter was sent to the PCB on Wednesday.

Former Sri Lanka captain Sanath Jayasuriya will lead players from the West Indies, South Africa and Afghanistan against a Pakistan All Stars side in exhibition matches on Saturday and Sunday, the first major international cricket in the country in more than three years.
