New Delhi: Even as a security delegation arrived from Pakistan to assess the security arrangements for their team ahead of the ICC World Twenty20, former skipper Inzamam ul Haq yesterday said they have never felt unsafe in India.

"I believe there are no security concerns. The players also enjoy playing in India. In our 2005 tour here, people treated us so nicely. No one took money when we shopped or ate out," Inzamam said at the Aaj Tak Cricket Salaam conclave.
Reacting to Imran
"We can't stop others from making statements," he said when asked about Imran Khan's suggestions that Pakistan must not play in Dharamsala in the wake of recent developments.
Both Inzamam and Sourav Ganguly, who was also part of the show, felt that India and Pakistan must play against each other regularly. "It's unfair if the two countries do not play cricket. It's bigger than Ashes. There is more following," Inzamam said.
The ICC is confident of the World T20 clash between India-Pak in Dharamsala is going ahead as scheduled and has no plans of shifting the venue. The ICC is also not too concerned about logistical issues at Delhi's Kotla.
