The team was received by top officials of the Bangladesh Cricket Board and immediately taken to it's hotel.

The Indian Government had yesterday given a partial go-ahead to the tour for the first Test match beginning here on Friday.

The five-member security delegation will visit Chittagong, the other venue, today to make an assessment of the threat perception there before clearing that segment.
