Glasgow:After a long gap traditional rivals India and Pakistan are likely to play in an ODI match at a neutral venue in Glasgow, Scotland in the first week of July.

According to a report in The Scotsman, a leading Asian broadcaster, which had earlier arranged India-Pakistan match in Toronto, Canada, has been surveying the location for the encounter.

The report said that over the past two days, technical representatives from the company have been eyeing both locations as part of their advanced planning process.

It is believed that if everything goes in the right direction then the big game will take place on July 4, with Scotland squaring up with Pakistan two days earlier.

The newspaper also quoted a Scottish insider as saying, ''The Pakistani authorities are keen to have an extra match because they don't fancy the idea of coming in cold against India in British conditions.''

Meanwhile, both matches are likely to go ahead either of Clydesdale's Titwood ground, or New Anniesland - home of Glasgow Accies.

''Arrangements have still to be finalised, but both matches would be held at the same venue because the facilities would be in place,'' the source added.
