India and Pakistan will play a six-match hockey Test series between February 15 and 25, with both the countries hosting three matches each.
Pakistan Hockey Federation secretary, Musarratullah Khan said on Thursday that India would host the first three games while the Pakistan-leg matches will be played between February 21 and 25.
"The series was finalised when I met Indian hockey officials during the Champions Trophy and it has been slotted keeping in mind that Pakistan has to participate in Commonwealth Games in March-April while India and Pakistan would have organised their national events before the series," Musarratullah said.
"Although most of the cities might feel deprived to watch the two teams in action, but we have preferred for minimum traveling and hosting matches in the shortest possible time frame," he added.
