The Indian cricket team toured Pakistan for cricket matches during the 2005�06 season. Both India and Pakistan have already played Test matches during this season; India were coming off a 2�0 series win at home over Sri Lanka, while Pakistan beat England by the same margin. In one-day international cricket, India's last series, in November 2005, ended in a 2�2 draw with South Africa, while Pakistan beat England 3�2 in December 2005. The tour began on 7 January 2006 with India playing Pakistan A in a non-first class game, and is scheduled to continue until 19 February.
Pakistan's captain, Inzamam-ul-Haq, said that India started as favourites in the Test series, while former fast bowler Sarfraz Nawaz has said that "it's easy to get the [Indian batsmen] out". The official ICC Test Championship had India in second place and Pakistan in fourth, while the ICC ODI Championship has Pakistan in the third place and India in the fifth place, at the end of 2005.
Pakistan won the Test series, claiming the third Test after 36 wickets fell in the first two games combined, while India took the ODIs by a comfortable 4�1 margin.
