The South African cricket team has cancelled a scheduled series of matches against Pakistan in late March next month due to the engagement of players in India and the Indian Premier League (IPL) tour.
Talks between Pakistan and South Africa after the Pakistan Super League (PSL) series of three T20 matches were underway and hope to hold the series.
However, due to the South African team’s visit to India as well as the engagements of most South African players in the Indian Premier League, they have been postponed to a series of events to save their players from injury and workload management.
The South African team will play a three-match ODI series in India, the last of which will be played on March 18.
The Indian Premier League in India is set to begin on March 28, and South African cricket officials have recently postponed the series to save players from the toughest schedule.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) also accepted the South African Cricket Board’s excuse, saying that we respect the decision of the South African Cricket Board and the workload management of the players is a top priority.
