Pakistan to tour SA later this month
KARACHI: Pakistan will tour South Africa to play three One Day International (ODI) and two T20s later the month of November, ARY News reported.
Cricket South Africa (CSA) and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have confirmed the tour, which was arranged following the announcement of the shortened tour by India to South Africa.
In the month of October PCB’s interim management committee had put forward the proposal for a short, limited-overs series to CSA.
The series was planned during a two-week window in November after the two sides wrap up their current bilateral series in the UAE on November 15.
South Africa didn’t have anything scheduled till the India series begins on December 5, while Pakistan’s next assignment would have been Sri Lanka in the UAE from December 11.
South Africa were originally due to play three Tests, seven ODIs and two T20s against India, which was cut to two Tests and three ODIs. As a result, Cape Town, Bloemfontein and East London lost their fixtures.
The schedule of Pakistan tour to South Africa is as follows,
November 20, 1st T20, Johannesburg.
November 22, 2nd T20, Cape Town.
November 24, 1st ODI, Cape Town.
November 27, 2nd ODI, Port Elizabeth.
November 30, 3rd ODI, Centurion.
