Pakistan's India tour likely by February end

KARACHI, SEPT. 27. The Pakistan cricket team is likely to tour India sometime towards the end of February. PCB sources told The News that both teams are likely to play three Tests and five one-day Internationals.

The six-week tour will begin on February 25 with the Test series and would then be followed by the ODIs, a PCB official was quoted as saying. He also said that BCCI had agreed to the schedule during talks in England on the sidelines of the ICC Champions Trophy. He further said that the chances of the national domestic champions of both countries playing a challenge match on an annual basis were also being looked into.

The official added that the PCB had confirmed that it would send its team to India in November to play a one-off international against India on November 13 to celebrate the platinum jubilee of the BCCI.

"They wanted us to play on November 14 or 15 but we suggested the 13th because of the Eid holidays in Pakistan and they have now agreed to this date. But we are now waiting for a written confirmation from them," he added. — ANI
