KARACHI: Pakistan’s proposed tour of India later this year will comprise three One-Day Internationals (ODIs) and two Twenty20s from December 24 to January 5, according to the scheduled sent to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) by its Indian counterparts.
The tour will start with the two Twenty20s followed by the ODIs. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has proposed matches in New Delhi, Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Kolkata and Chennai with Mumbai not chosen as venue with fear of a backlash because of the 2008 attacks. According to the PCB officials, the board, after consultation with Misbahul Haq and Mohammad Hafeez, will send a reply to the BCCI shortly.
The official also confirmed that the PCB will send its delegation to India ahead of the tour to assess the security situation as well as the arrangements at the venues.
