Kolkata:The two-member Pakistan security team today met with the newly elected office bearers of the Indian Cricket Board and would now be heading for Ahmedabad tomorrow.

Zakir Khan, General Manager (Operations) of Pakistan Cricket Board and Sohail Khan, SSP, Lahore met the BCCI officials after the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting here.

Cricket Board Secretary S K Nair later told reporters that the team was handed a programme schedule detailing their stay and travel in India.

"We have given them a schedule. They would now be heading for Ahmedabad which has been recommended as one of the Test venues during the forthcoming series," Nair said.

Nair said the team was "expected to wind up its visit by January 31".

"Once they go back, they would file a report. Once that report reaches us, we will convene a Working Committee meeting to discuss it in detail. It is then we will know whether further dialogue is required (with PCB) or any improvement needed at any of the venues," he said adding that he was hopeful that the report would be made available to BCCI by the first week of February.

Nair said subsequent to the Working Committee meeting, the venues identified would be forwarded to the Government for final approval.

Pakistan are to arrive on February 25 to play three Tests and five one-day internationals against India. The BCCI has shortlisted the venues but the dates of the matches are yet to be finalised.
