The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has announced its decision to send a three-man team to Pakistan in the first week of February to assess the security arrangements for India's tour in March. Jagmohan Dalmiya, talking about this delegation, said, "we have to rely on specialists."

The only security specialist among the three people named, though, is Yasovardhan Azad, an inspector general of police for VIP security, who has been nominated by the ministry of home affairs. The other two members of the delegation are Ratnakar Shetty, BCCI's joint secretary, and Amrit Mathur, the director, communications.
