Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Tuesday announced a three-match ODI and a two-match T20 series between the two countries which will take place in South Africa later this month. 

The series was arranged following the shortened tour by India to South Africa.

“This is certainly fantastic news for the Proteas and our fans,” commented CSA Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat.

“With the Indian tour having unfortunately been curtailed, we needed to give our fans the opportunity to see the Proteas in action, and I’m delighted that Pakistan accepted our offer to tour here.

“It’s not been an easy period for South African cricket, but I want to thank our fans and commercial partners for their patience and support during this time,” added Lorgat.

The Pakistan team is expected to arrive in South Africa on November 18. The tour schedule and ticket details will be announced shortly.

“We are very happy to tour South Africa and to play against one of the best teams in the world,” said PCB chairperson, Najam Sethi.

“The tour will be beneficial to both our Boards and we are looking forward to build on our excellent relationship with Cricket South Africa.” he added.

Lorgat leaves for Dubai later on Tuesday to meet with the PCB to agree full details on the tour.
