Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf will visit India on April 17 to watch a cricket match and also hold talks with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, an Indian Government spokesman said on Wednesday.

"On April 17, Mr Musharraf will be in Delhi to watch the cricket match. He will also meet with the Prime Minister," Singh's spokesman Sanjaya Baru said.

In Islamabad, an official who declined to be named said earlier on Wednesday the President was "expected" to visit New Delhi on April 17, when the Pakistan cricket team will play the last of six One-Day International matches against India.

Musharraf last visited India in June 2001 for a summit in Agra with then Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee.
