Lahore: The Pakistan Cricket Committee (PCB) confirmed on Wednesday that the South African team will visit Pakistan in January 14 years later to participate in 3 T20I and 2 test matches.

The last time the South African team visited Pakistan was in 2007, when the Proteas won the Karachi Test with a score of 160 and won the championship 1-0.

The subsequent 2010 and 2013 series were held in the United Arab Emirates.

According to PCB regulations, South Africa will arrive in Karachi on January 16 next year and will conduct its first test at the Karachi National Stadium from January 26 to 30.

The team will then go to Rawalpindi for the second test, which will take place from February 4th to 8th.

After the Test series, the T20 series will be played at Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium where the teams will play three T20Is from February 11-14.

“Upon arrival in Karachi and in the lead up to the first Test, South Africa will observe an isolation period following which they will hold training sessions and play intra-squad practice matches,” said the PCB in a statement.
