The ICA confirmed that the Indian board had agreed to the tour during which what was described as a “full-strength A side” will play against an Invitational XI featuring players from a number of countries, including Adam Bacher.

Seven overseas cricketers are reported to have accepted the invitations and the squad will be supplemented by local players.

    Muzher, It's been 60 years since that vote. Quite a bit has changed in that time.I, for one, think it's great. International cricket increases understanding and familiarity between peoples. A bit of knowledge and goodwill goes a very long way in this world.

    It is odd, especially since India did not recognize Israel until the 90's when Israel recognized the Palestinian Authority.

    Odd that India, a country which voted against the UN partition plan which led to the creation of Israel, is sending a cricket team over to celebrate it's 60th anniversary.
