Islamabad: Pakistani Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has accepted India Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's invitation to watch the World Cup semi-final between the cricket teams of the two countries in Mohali on Wednesday.

According to sources, the decision has been conveyed to the Indian government.

The decision was taken after a meeting between Gilani and President Asif Ali Zardari. However, there was no official word on this from the Pakistan government.

Gilani would informally meet Singh during the match and a formal meeting would be held after the game, news daily quoted its sources as saying.

Another news daily reported that Gilani would pay a two-day visit to India for a fresh round of "cricket diplomacy."

It said that Gilani's decision to accept Singh's invitation has been conveyed to New Delhi through diplomatic channels.

The Indian High Commission here, however, said it has not received any information from the Pakistani side in this regard.
