Pakistan’s tour of South Africa will not last more than two weeks

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have revealed that they are in talks with Cricket South Africa to have the national team tour the African nation when their ongoing series against the Proteas in the United Arab Emirates finishes.

If the tour goes ahead, it will most likely start in late November since the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) shortened their trip in December.

Speaking to The Associated Press (AP), PCB spokesman Nadeem Sarwar revealed that negotiations were at a “very initial stage”.

He added that Pakistan’s tour would not last more than two weeks since they have a series against Sri Lanka, which begins on December 11.

Cricket South Africa confirmed that they were in negotiations with the PCB and looking to make up for the matches the BCCI cancelled.

“We are not in a position to make any official announcements yet but hope to do so in the near future,” Cricket South Africa said.
