Friday, January 30 2004 19:24 Hrs (IST)

Karachi:Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shaharyar Khan on Friday called on Indian High Commissioner Shivshankar Menon in Pakistan and apprised him of the security arrangements for the Indian cricket team during the upcoming home series.

Security has emerged as a major issue on India's first full-fledged tour of Pakistan in 15 years even as the two cricket Boards are finalising the dates and venues for the three Test and five One-day International series.

Menon on Thursday had said that the hype surrounding the cricket series was building up and hoped sporting contacts would mark the beginning of a new chapter in Indo-Pak relations.

"The hype is building up in both India and Pakistan and Indian team is eagerly awaited in Pakistan which is a very positive sign," Menon said during an interaction with the media.

"It is a positive sign that cricket is being revived and both the Boards are working to sort out the details and a security team is arriving.

"Cricket is one of the confidence building measures and can add to the peace process both countries have initiated, and as a keen follower of the game I keep my fingers crossed for exciting cricket," he said.
