Dharamsala: The two-member team of Pakistani officials held meetings with top police officials at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association soon after arriving to assess the security arrangements for the Twenty-20 World Cup match to be played between India and Pakistan on 19 March.
The Pakistani team, headed by Director Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) Usman Anwar and comprising Pakistan Cricket Board official Ajam Khan, crossed over to India via the land transit route of Attari-Wagah border of Punjab.

Sources in the know of developments said the officials were "busy in talks with high level police team of the state in the premises of HPCA".
The team is expected to meet Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh. They will submit a report to Pakistani Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan and PCB officials.
Pakistan are scheduled to start their campaign on March 16 against a qualifier before clashing with India on March 19.
However, the much-anticipated match has been thrown into jeopardy after HP Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh said the game should be shifted out to respect popular sentiment after the Pathankot terror attacks.
