Indian officials expect more than 8000 Pakistani fans to cross the border to watch the first test and Musharraf told the Pakistan Observer newspaper he was also interested in taking in some of the tour of India, which will run to three five-day tests and six one-day games. A tour of Pakistan by India’s cricket team last year was hailed as a phenomenal success in fostering good relations between countries that have fought three wars since gaining independence from Britain in 1947.
