In the international cricket, South Africa is now touring Pakistan for the Test and T20I bilateral series. It is their first Pakistan tour for more than 13 years as Proteas men’s cricket team last time played in Pakistan in October 2007.

In this historical tour, we will first experience a two-match Test series between 26th January and 8th February 2021. Then the hosts Pakistan will play a three-match T20I series against the same visiting sides, Proteas. The T20I series will run from 11th to 14th February 2021.

After the terrorist attack on the Sri Lankan cricket bus in March 2009, Pakistan have hosted only three Tests – two Tests against Sri Lanka in December 2019 and one Test against Bangladesh in February 2020. However, the Test series against Proteas will be the first Test series in Pakistan with the non-Asian opponents since October 2007. Incidentally, South Africa were the last non-Asian side to play a Test in Pakistan (at Lahore in October 2007).

Also, the first T20I of this Pakistan tour will be the first-ever T20I match in this country for the Proteas side.
