Cape Town - Pakistan have begun their tour of South Africa by bowling first against an SA Invitation XI in Benoni on Wednesday. 

SCORECARD: SA Invitation XI v Pakistan

Pakistan will take on the Proteas in three Test matches, starting on Boxing Day in Centurion, before playing three T20Is and five ODIs against the South Africans.

The SA Invitation XI, meanwhile, is made of young players on the fringes of franchise cricket. 

The match will end on Friday.
