  • PCB partners with SNTV for HBL PSL 2020

The PCB had already proposed Rawalpindi as the venue for the series to the CSA and was also expecting a security official from South Africa to visit Pakistan during the PSL tournament, starting next week. The planned tour will be rescheduled after the two boards find a new window.

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.

The tour was scheduled for March this year.

South Africa will not be touring Pakistan in the proposed one-week window from March 22-29 to manage players' workload.

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

Fixture congestion rather than security concerns was behind South Africa´s decision to postpone a short tour of Pakistan, Cricket South Africa acting chief executive Jacques Faul said on Friday. "I have assured my counterpart at the PCB, Wasim Khan, that the tour remains very much on our global schedule".

The PCB said in a statement "while we were keenly looking forward to hosting South Africa next month, we respect Cricket South Africa's reason for not sending their side next month".

After the three T20s against England, the Proteas will host Australia for three ODIs and as many T20s with the last match ending on March 7, leaving less than a week in between for the series-opener in India at Dharamsala.
