Pakistan keen on short SA tour
Cape Town - The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is keen to schedule a short limited-overs tour to South Africa next month, a report on the ESPNcricinfo website
The two teams are currently involved in a series in the UAE which is set to end on November 15, but the Pakistanis could then return to face the Proteas again to fill a vacant gap in both teams' schedules.
Pakistan's schedule is bare until Sri Lanka arrive in the UAE for a full tour starting December 11, while South Africa will be free until India arrive in early December.
South Africa will be eager to get more games, especially after the Indian tour to these shores was cut short
The month-long tour in December will comprise of a mere two Tests and three ODIs - much less than the three Tests, seven ODIs and three T20s initially planned.
Cricket SA will reportedly lose R200m in lost revenue, so a few T20 and ODIs against Pakistan in late November would go some way in making up for that.
A PCB spokesperson confirmed that they are in communication with South Africa regarding a short tour but said the correspondence is at a preliminary stage with no concrete decision made so far.
