Indian Senior Cricket Team to Play Full Complement of Matches in Pakistan - 2003-11-09

According to a top Indian cricket board official, India's senior cricket team will visit Pakistan in March to play a full complement of test and one-day matches.

The president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, Jagmohan Dalmiya, told journalists in Calcutta Sunday that details were still being worked out for the "full-fledged" tour, with test matches and one-day internationals.

India recently announced its willingness to resume sporting ties, including cricket, with Pakistan as part of efforts to ease tensions between the hostile neighbors.

India has not played a test match in Pakistan since 1989-90, after Delhi accused Islamabad of backing cross-border terrorism in the disputed Kashmir region. Pakistan toured India for three test matches in the 1999-2000 season.
