Pakistan is expected to tour South Africa early next year or welcome its cricket team. Cricket South Africa (CSA) has canceled a limited-overs series between the two teams in October due to the Covid-19 epidemic. Pakistan was scheduled to play a short one-day international and T20 series in South Africa in October, but the host country canceled the series due to the current state of the corona virus epidemic.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) sources, however, said that the CSA had informed them that they were looking for a new window for the series early next year. “If the situation does not improve for South Africa to fully resume cricket activities, there is a possibility that we are ready to host them in February before the Pakistan Super League,” the source said.

For the full series of Tests and limited overs, Pakistan will have to tour New Zealand from November to the end of January, then the Pakistan Super League will start on February 20 and it will be time to start the series with the PCB.
Earlier, the Zimbabwe cricket team received permission from its government to visit Pakistan next month, where it will play a limited-overs series. Zimbabwe and Pakistan are scheduled to play three ODIs and three T20I matches in late October and November. The Pakistan Cricket Board has said that three ODIs will be played at the same stadium in Multan and three T20 matches will be played at the same stadium in Rawalpindi.

Spectators will not be allowed to come to the stadium during matches. These sites have been chosen because Pakistan is hosting matches in the domestic Twenty20 tournament later this month, which will revive Pakistan cricket and officials will get a better feel of the Covid-19 protocol.
