New Delhi, Mar 28: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his Pakistani counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani are expected to hold a meeting before the World Cup semi-final match between their two cricket teams in Mohali on Wednesday.

While officials here are refusing to tag the meeting as "formal", the two leaders are expected to discuss bilateral issues following which Gilani will join Singh to watch the Indo-Pak cricket match.

Sources said Gilani will not be coming to Delhi and is expected to reach Chandigarh on Wednesday morning same as Prime Minister Singh, who has a public engagement here that morning.

Refusing to give further details, the sources said the programme is being finalised.

It will be "more of cricket and less of diplomacy", sources said when asked about the issues the two Prime Ministers will be discussing.

Indulging in cricket diplomacy, Singh had invited Gilani to watch the World Cup semis between India and Pakistan which was accepted by the Pakistani Prime Minister.
