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.
