South Africa Tour Of Pakistan Postponed Due To Heavy Workload

Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Friday expressed their inability to tour Pakistan next month, assuring the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) that they will honour the commitment of sending their side as soon as "it is reasonably possible".

The Proteas, who are now playing England in a three-match T20 series at home, next host Australia in three T20s and as many one-day internationals before traveling to India for three ODIs between March 12-18.

South Africa, who are also touring India for three ODIs, were looking to visit Pakistan for three T20Is after the conclusion of the Pakistan Super League (PSL) on March 22 and before the start of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on March 29. Furthermore, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) meant to make them stay back in Dubai and board them the flight to Pakistan for the T20I leg of the tour, in Rawalpindi.

"This has been done purely because of the heavy workload and global schedule our players are facing in the immediate future", said Faul.

South Africa are now hosting England for a T20I series, which was preceded by four Tests and three ODIs.

South Africa have called off their tour of Pakistan as they look to manage the players' workload but the series may take place later on if the two boards manage to find a window for it.

The England tour ends with the third T20 global in Centurion on Sunday and will be followed immediately by three T20 internationals and three one-day internationals against Australia, ending on March 7.

"We are pleased that the CSA remains committed to rescheduling this short series as soon as practically possible, Wasim Khan said".
