"We have taken note of his request and we know that he is very serious about seeing cricket matches between India and Pakistan. If the invitation is extended to him it would be for the whole series and not just for one particular venue. It would be left to him to decide where he wants to come," the official said.

Protocol and other matters would be taken care off by the government once the General confirms his visit.

Senior officials of the external affairs ministry could not be contacted for their reaction.
