ISLAMABAD, Mar 03 (AP/UNB) - Pakistan government officials have promised intense security measures for a nine-member delegation from Bangladesh which will assess the country's ability to resume hosting international cricket.
Pakistan has not hosted a test-playing country since gunmen attacked Sri Lanka's team bus at Lahore in March 2009, killing six police officers and a van driver.
Pakistan is planning to end that isolation by hosting Bangladesh for a limited-overs tour next month, with the Bangladesh delegation visiting over two days to check on security measures.
Pakistan interior minister Rehman Malik assured Bangladesh Cricket Board chairman Mustafa Kamal on Saturday that "from landing to departure... they will stand fully protected."
