Dhaka:The 15-member Indian cricket team arrived here today amidst tight security for a tour which had come under a cloud because of a death threat by a militant group.

The team was received by top officials of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).

The Government had yesterday given a partial go-ahead to the tour for the first Test match beginning here on Friday.

The five-member security delegation will today visit Chittagong, the other venue, to assess the threat perception there before clearing that segment.

India is scheduled to play two Test matches and three One-day Internationals during their 22-day tour.
