Pakistan to fill gap left by Indian tour

2013-11-06 00:00

JOHANNESBURG — The Pakistan cricket team will travel to South Africa later this month to play three one-day internationals (ODIs) and two Twenty20 games to fill the gap left by India’s shortened end-of-year tour against the Proteas.

“With the Indian tour having unfortunately been curtailed, we needed to give our fans the opportunity to see the Proteas in action, and I’m delighted that Pakistan accepted our offer to tour here,” Cricket SA’s chief executive Harron Lorgat said in a statement yesterday. “It’s not been an easy period for South African cricket, but I want to thank our fans and commercial partners for their patience and support during this time.”

Pakistan is expected to arrive in SA on 18 November. Tickets go on sale from Friday, November 8, from 11 am.
