New Delhi, May 9 (UNI) Hockey connoisseurs could be in for a treat with the newly-appointed ad hoc committee of the Indian Hockey Federation (IHF) contemplating a test series against arch-rivals Pakistan after the Beijing Olympics.

Pakistan Hockey Federation (PHF) spokesman Altaf Sabir said here today that the committee yesterday discussed the probability of the home-and-away series with the PHF.

''We have told them that Pakistan is keen to have this series as it would help both the countries try out new players and gain competitive exposure,'' Sabir said.

He added that Pakistan would remain busy with their Olympic preparations in the next few months and ''the modalities of the series could be worked out only after the Beijing Games.'' The two neighbouring countries had played a six-match home-and-away series in 2006.
