South Africa’s cricket board has confirmed its national team will be touring Pakistan early next year after a gap of 14 years to play two Tests and three T20 internationals.
“The tour is scheduled to run from 26 January to 14 February 2021, with the team arriving in Karachi on 16 January. They will go into a period of quarantine before commencing with training and inter-squad practice matches,”.
The first five-day match will be played in the southern port city of Karachi from Jan. 26 to 30, while the next destination will be Rawalpindi for the second Test on Feb. 4-8.
The three T20s will be played in the Lahore city.
The last time the two teams met in Pakistan was in 2007 when South Africa beat the hosts 1-0 in a two-match Test series.
“It’s pleasing to see so many countries making a return to Pakistan – a proud, cricket-loving nation. Cricket South Africa is delighted to be counted among them.
