After cricket it’s the Pakistan hockey team to tour India in march to play five match series. In a return goodwill gesture, the Indian hockey team is expected to tour Pakistan a month later in May for another five match series.
The modalities of both the series would be sorted out in a joint meeting between Hockey India secretary-general Narinder Batra and Pakistan Hockey Federation chief Asif Bajwa in Lahore on December 29.
The last Indo-Pak hockey Test series, with three matches in each country, was held in early 2006. Pakistan had won three matches, India had clinched one while two were drawn.
