An ITF delegation has been to Islamabad to inspect the preparations and security of the pre-scheduled Group 1 Asia-Oceania zone clash which is scheduled to be held in September. Reports further state that the international officers were satisfied by the security preparations made for the tie.

India and Pakistan are scheduled to go up against one another in a Davis Cup tie in September, ahead of which a two-member delegation of the International Tennis Federation (ITF) travelled to Islamabad in order to assess preparations and security for the Group-1 Asia-Oceania zone encounter

"They inspected all the facilities at the hotel and also the venue for the tie. They have informed the PSB Director-General, Arif Ibrahim, of the measures required to be taken for the tie to be held smoothly," an official was quoted telling PTI sources.

India will be in Islamabad two months later after ITF gave Pakistan the right to host the tie on September 14 and 15. The ITF delegation, headed by Richard Simon, met PTF President Salim Saifullah and inspected the venue and the hotel where the players and officials will stay.

India and Pakistan will face each other in a tennis contest for the first time in 13 years. The last time the two countries played each other was in April 2006, with the event taking place in Mumbai.
