India and Pakistan have agreed to run special trains carrying cricket fans from Lahore to Chandigarh for the first cricket Test match next week.

The match is expected to draw thousands across the border. About 7,500 tickets have gone on sale in Lahore.

India and Pakistan resumed train links in January last year with a service from Lahore to the border station of Attari.

Rail links between the two nuclear rivals had been suspended for two years amid deteriorating relations.
