Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Tuesday announced the fixture list for Pakistan’s limited overs tour later this month.

The tour will start with two T20 matches to be played at the Wanderers Stadium and Newlands, and will be followed by three One-Day Internationals to be played at Newlands, St. George’s and SuperSport Park.

Newlands, South Africa's most supported ground, was controversially overlooked for T20s, ODIs and Tests against India later this year.

“We are really happy to have a full international fixture list for the 2013/14 season with five Test matches, six ODI’s and five T20 International matches,” commented CSA Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat.

“This was important for our team as they prepare for global events and for our fans and stakeholders who have been fantastic in supporting us through a difficult time.

“We have also done our best to give all our venues a fair chance bearing in mind that we have practical and logistical issues to deal with,” he added.

Preferential ticket sales for Love Cricket Gold and Silver members will go on sale tomorrow at 11:00 with ticket sales to the public opening on Friday, November 8 at 11:00.

Pakistan tour itinerary:

November 20: 1st T20, Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg
November 22: 2nd T20 International, Newlands, Cape Town

November 24: 1st ODI, Newlands, Cape Town
November 27, 2nd ODI, St George’s, Port Elizabeth
November 30, 3rd ODI, SuperSport Park, Centurion
