Due to the coronavirus pandemic, cricketers have to adhere to strict procedures for an global series.

Earlier, Pakistan batting coach Younis Khan highlighted how other teams have players who burst into the global arena after playing at least 100 first-class games, and Pakistan on the other hand picks players looking at their performances in other formats.

"Home conditions bring confidence in players". Right now, I'm still in a good place. Last week, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced a 20-member squad, including nine uncapped players, for the Test series, which commences on January 26.

"For now, (I'm) enjoying the four walls of my room and then the pitch outside where we can get to do what we love", du Plessis said.

The series will be also marked as the first tour for South Africa to Pakistan since 2007 and none of the current South African players have played on Pakistan before. England is the only other team that has won in Karachi when it beat Pakistan by six wickets in 2000.
