South Africa Planning Cricket Tour in Pakistan
For the first time in twelve years, Cricket South Africa has finally announced that they will be planning a cricket tour in Pakistan.
For the first time in twelve years, Cricket South Africa has announced that South Africa is planning a cricket tour in Pakistan. On Tuesday, 27th October, CSA announced that a security delegation will be sent to Pakistan this weekend with the hopes of playing in the country somewhere in 2021.
If all goes well with the security delegation’s tour, then this will be South Africa’s first cricket tour in Pakistan since 2007 or 2008. In the meanwhile, two tours were planned in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) because of the security concerns to the team; given the attack on the Sri Lankan team in 2009.
So far no details of South Africa’s cricket tour in Pakistan have been revealed, however, according to the International Cricket Council South Africa is expected to participate in two world Test championship matches as well as three Twenty-20 internationals in January and February.
This announcement seemed to confirm that South Africa will be hosting Sri Lanka in two World Test Championship matches over the summer vacations. Moreover, the first Test will be held in Centurion from December 26th to 30th and the second Test will be in Johannesburg from January 3rd to 7th.
CSA’s acting Chief Executive, Kugandrie Govender, has announced a series of matches that South Africa will be hosting along with its cricket tour in Pakistan. Australia is said to visit the country for three World Test Championship matches in March and April 2021.
This will then be followed by Pakistan who will play three one-day international matches along with three T20 internationals, the dates to these are yet to be announced. The South African men’s cricket team has not been in action ever since the Indian tour was called off because of the coronavirus pandemic in March 2020. Which is why South Africa’s cricket tour in Pakistan will be beneficial for both the hosting and visiting country.
