BCCI announces dates, venues for India-Pak series

Mumbai: A day after the Home Ministry cleared Pakistan cricket team’s upcoming tour of India, the BCCI on November 1 announced the schedule of the limited-over series that begins with a Twenty20 international on December 25 in Bangalore. The Pakistan 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.
