Amid cheers from waiting fans, the Pakistan Twenty20 squad led by Mohammed Hafeez, reached Banglore, India for its much-waited tour of the country during which it will play two T20 matches, first of which will be held on December 25.
Pakistan will start their campaign against the hosts with the T20 match on the Christmas Day at the Chinnaswamy stadium here. The visiting team is scheduled to practice at the stadium tomorrow morning and captain Hafeez and coach Dav Whatmore would address the media around 12.30 pm.
After Bangalore, Pakistan will play their second T20 match against India at Ahmedabad on December 27 before heading to Chennai for the first of the three-match ODI series, starting December 30. The second ODI will be played at Kolkata on January 3, while Delhi will host the final one-dayer on January 6.
The last time the two neighbouring countries met in a bilateral series was in 2007 when Pakistan toured India. Cricketing ties between the two nations were snapped after the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.
