Pakistan cricket team will begin the much anticipated India tour with a Twenty20 clash in Bangalore on December 25, the BCCI announced today.
The Indian Home Ministry had cleared the Pakistan cricket team’s upcoming tour of India yesterday.
The team will touch down at Bangalore on December 22 and will kick-off their campaign against the hosts with a T20 international at the city’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
The visitors will then move to Ahmedabad for the second T20 game (December 27) before heading to Chennai for the first of the three-match ODI series on December 30.
The second ODI of the series will be played at Kolkata on January 3, while the third and final one-dayer will be held at Delhi on January 6, a BCCI release stated.
The arch-rivals have not played a bilateral series since Pakistan’s tour of India in 2007. The cricketing ties between the two nations were snapped after the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.
