after 14 years: South Africa to tour Pakistan

South Africa cricket team will tour Pakistan early next year after a period of 14 years to play two ICC World Test Championship fixtures and three Twenty20 Internationals, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced on Wednesday.

The Proteas will first come to Karachi on January 16 where they will start the tour off with the first Test at the National Stadium from Jan 26-30. Their next destination will be Rawalpindi for the second Test from Feb 4-8 and then Lahore, where Gaddafi Stadium will host three T20Is on Feb 11, 13, and 14.

PCB Director International Cricket Zakir Khan said,

“South Africa confirming a tour to Pakistan and playing matches at the three major centers is fabulous news for Pakistan cricket and its fans. South Africa is one of the most popular sides in Pakistan even though they last played here in 2007, but the fans have been following their performances closely and now look forward to welcoming them.”

The PCB said all Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs) will be followed and the visitors will remain in isolation in the run-up to the first Test in Karachi.
