Kolkata:

Top PCB officials Shaharyar Khan and Najam Sethi will be in attendance to watch their team take on India in the marquee match of the ICC World T20 to be played in Kolkata on March 19.

Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan is also among the Pakistani guests to watch the much-awaited clash at the Eden Gardens.

"Our chairman (Shaharyar) is travelling to Kolkata for the match and so is Najam Sethi (executive committee chairman)," PCB media director Amjad Hussain said. (After Loss to NZ, India's Chances of Winning World T20 Dip)

Former Pakistan captain Imran is also expected to be in attendance alongside Zaheer Abbas, who is the current ICC president.

For the record, Pakistan have never lost to India at the Eden Gardens while the hosts have never lost to Pakistan in the World Cup.

Pakistan on Wednesday kicked off their campaign with a 55-run win over Bangladesh but hosts India suffered a shocking defeat to New Zealand on Tuesday.
