The first one-day international cricket match between India and Pakistan at Karachi on Saturday will have special guests.

Priyanka Vadra, along with her husband Robert Vadra, and Rahul Gandhi will travel to Pakistan for the match.

Union Minister for Shipping Shatrughan Sinha, Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament and top Board of Control for Cricket in India official Rajiv Shukla are also likely to watch the match.

Shukla said the BCCI is also keen to invite Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Deputy Prime Minister Lal Kishenchand Advani and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi to watch some of the other matches.

"The Pakistan Cricket Board has been informed about the visits of the dignitaries and they have promised to extend VVIP protocol to them," he said.
