Kolkata: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday said it was working on the itinerary of the ice-breaking Indo-Pak bilateral cricket series in February-March next year saying a proposal in this regard has been received from its Pakistani counterpart.

"We have decided to go to Pakistan but nothing has been fixed about the itinerary," BCCI President Jagmohan Dalmiya said in Kolkata.

The BCCI, he said, has received a proposal from Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) about possible dates of the matches and "the secretaries are working on the number of matches to be played and the dates.

Once these are finalised, we will come back to you". The PCB on Wednesday suggested February 26-April 15 as the period of the tour of the Indian team to Pakistan for seven One-dayers and three Tests along with a few side matches.

Dalmiya, however, did not make any comment when asked if BCCI would suggest any list of preferred venues for the matches.

India would be undertaking a full-fledged tour of Pakistan after a gap of 15 years following government's decision to resume bilateral cricket ties.

About the security concerns over Pakistan 'A' team's tour to the city to play a triangular series later this month, Dalmiya said, " it will be looked after by the Home Ministry and police authorities".

Meanwhile, Pakistan High Commissioner Aziz Ahmed Khan ruled out any security concern for the Indian team during their tour to the neighbouring country. "There will be no security problem," he said.
