Cape Town – The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is in talks with Cricket South Africa (CSA) over a short return series immediately after the teams' current contest in the United Arab Emirates.
PCB spokesman Nadeem Sarwar told The Associated Press that talks were at a “very initial stage” over Pakistan touring South Africa for not more than two weeks around late November and early December.
The hastily-arranged tour will help fill the gaps left in South Africa's home calendar after India shorted their end-of-year trip. India will only play two Tests and three ODIs in South Africa after rejecting a planned longer series.
Cricket South Africa confirmed they were “exploring alternatives” to make up for the lost games against India. – Sapa-AP
