The Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA) sources said that the team will arrive in the city between 9 pm to 9.15 pm via New Delhi in a chartered flight.

KSCA sources said that the Pakistan team will leave Lahore around 2.15 pm and arrive in Delhi between 3 pm to 3.15 pm and would board the chartered flight to Bangalore after two hours halt at the capital.

The limited overs series between India and Pakistan will kick off with the first Twenty20 International to be played at M Chinnaswamy Stadium on December 25.

Pakistan will play their second T20 match against India at Ahmedabad on December 28 before heading to Chennai for the first of the three-match ODI series, starting December 30.

The second ODI of the series will be played at Kolkata on January 3, while Delhi host the third and final One-dayer on January 6.

The last time the two neighbouring countries met in a bilateral series was way back in 2007 when Pakistan toured India.

The cricketing ties between the two nations were snapped after the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.
