New Delhi, December 22:

The Pakistan Twenty20 squad led by Mohammed Hafeez touched down here this evening before taking a connecting flight to Bangalore where they will be playing the first of the two Twenty20 Internationals on December 25.

The PIA flight arrived in Delhi late in the afternoon and the squad was received by the senior officials of the Pakistan High Commission and BCCI officials.

We were received by the officials of Pakistan High Commission as well as BCCI Chief Administrative Officer
Ratnakar Shetty. The players got a warm welcome and were presented with lovely bouquets. The players are very happy and upbeat having received such a warm welcome," PCB GM (Media Affairs) Nadeem Sarwar, who is accompanying the squad, told PTI today.

In fact during our short flight from Lahore, the co-passengers came and encouraged the players and they
expressed their solidarity with the team with some of them even promising to come to the stadium to support the team
during this tour," Sarwar added.

Pakistan squad later took an evening flight to Bangalore where they are expected to reach at around half past nine.

Earlier, former captains Javed Miandad and Inzamam ul Haq wished the team luck before their departure from Lahore.
