Karachi: Desperate to ensure that India does not back out of the tour to Pakistan owing to security fears, the PCB is meeting top government officials to start the groundwork for the series, which is still a couple of months away.

Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) director-general Saleem Altaf says he is confident that India would go ahead with the tour as it has confirmed the itinerary.

Altaf revealed India would be sending a security delegation before the tour as part of a routine exercise to coordinate logistical arrangements.

“But we are confident the Indians will fulfil their obligation as the tour is part of the future tours programme of the ICC,” Altaf stated. — PTI
