March 8: The much-anticipated World Twenty20 cricket match between India and Pakistan will be held as scheduled in Dharamsala, Tournament Director M V Sridhar said today.
“The match is on. The State and Central Governments are onboard and all security arrangements have been made,” he said after a meeting with Special Secretary (Internal Security) in the Home Ministry M K Singla besides others here.
Pakistan will play against India on March 19 in Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh. There has been some opposition in the State, including from ex-servicemen, on holding the match at the hill station.
Sridhar, however, said discussions with Home Ministry officials remained inconclusive and a few issues are yet to be sorted out.
