“Pakistan is the host of the Asia Cup. It is purely a cricket visit. There is no politics involved. It is a two-day visit and the Punjab Governer has organized a dinner for us tonight,” Rajiv Shukla told media before leaving Amritsar for Lahore.

Upon their arrival at the Wagah Border, media coverage was not permitted. The delegation was subsequently transported to the Pearl Continental hotel under strict security measures, where teams from Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Bangladesh are currently accommodated.

The primary objective of this BCCI delegation's visit is to engage in discussions of mutual interest with officials from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). They also plan to witness the Asia Cup 2023 match between Sri Lanka and Afghanistan at the Gaddafi Stadium on Tuesday. Furthermore, the delegation is also likely to attend Pakistan's Super Four match on Wednesday.

As a gesture of diplomatic goodwill and collaboration, the delegation will also participate in an official dinner hosted at the Governor's House.
