Pakistan’s tour of South Africa is scheduled to begin on November 20

In a rather bizarre turn of events, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have announced that the national team will tour South Africa later this month for three ODIs and two Twenty20 Internationals.

The series was recently scrapped due to the fact that the Islamabad High Court suspended PCB chairman Najam Sethi.

However Sethi, who is also in charge of the interim management committee, which was allowed to function again by the Islamabad High Court, has already told a Pakistan television channel that Cricket South Africa are willing to pay US$ 1.5 million for the tour.

According to the initial itinerary, Pakistan’s tour of South Africa will begin on November 20 and conclude on November 30.

The tour will start with the two Twenty20 Internationals, which will be held in Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Cape Town will also host the first ODI, while Port Elizabeth will host second and Centurion will be the place to be for the third and final ODI.

Following their short tour of South Africa, Pakistan will return to the United Arab Emirates to start preparing for their series against Sri Lanka, which gets underway on December 11.
