India tour of Pakistan from 10 March to 17 April

MUMBAI: The suspense is finally over for Ten Sports and it can now get down to planning telecast details for India's tour to Pakistan.

The Indian cricket team will tour Pakistan between 10 March and April 17, playing three Tests and five One-Day Internationals, the Board of Cricket Control in Indian (BCCI) chief Jagmohan Dalmiya announced in Kolkata today.

In one area however, there has been a change in itinerary. Belying expectations to the contrary, the 39-day long series, the first full-fledged one by India in over 14 years, will begin first with the one-dayers and then will be followed by the Tests.

Asked why the one-dayers preceded the Test series, Dalmiya said there were two reasons for holding the limited-over series first.

"The team has come from Australia after a one-day series so it would be easier for them to adjust. We understand the importance of the elections and drew up the itinerary so that there is minimum interference with the election process," Dalmiya was quoted in media reports as saying.

Three Indian security officials would accompany the team -- one chief security liaison officer and two assistant liaison officers.
