Lahore , Sat, 10 Nov 2012 ANI

Lahore, Nov. 10 (ANI): Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan Sharat Sabharwal has assured the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) that its team would be provided complete security during its tour to India, as well as to players if selected for the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Sabharwal, in a meeting with PCB chairman Zaka Ashraf, discussed security measures which will be taken during the upcoming series and said that the series will improve cricket relations between the two countries, reports The Express Tribune.

Sabharwal expressed optimism that maximum number of Pakistani fans will be issued visas to visit India to watch the matches. He gave firm assurance that maximum number of spectators will be accommodated.

"I think the signals from Indian side are very positive as far as issue of giving visas to the Pakistani spectators is concerned. I am confident that this issue will be finalised soon and a good number of Pakistanis will be crossing the border to watch the series," Ashraf said.

The improving ties between the two cricket boards, which resulted in the confirmation of a short series between the archrivals in December, also made the possibility of Pakistan players featuring in the IPL higher than ever. The last time Pakistan cricketers took part in the IPL was in 2008. (ANI)
