Pakistan will be hosting the Indian team for the first time after 1964, where the matches are scheduled to be played on September 14 and 15 in Islamabad.

India has ignored most sporting events in Pakistan for over a decade — the 2007 cricket tour to Pakistan was the last significant “away” sporting trip that India undertook. Many experts have termed this as a great step to restore sporting ties between India and Pakistan especially Cricket which remains the No.1 sport in the sub-continent.
