The South African squad would undergo COVID-19 tests upon reaching their hotel.
The tourists will begin their five-day quarantine from today but they would be allowed practice at Karachi Gymkhana ground after clearance of their COVID-19 tests. The visitors will begin training in National Stadium, following two negative Covid-19 tests.
The visitors will play two Tests and three-match Twenty20 International (T20I) series between the two countries.
The visiting team has been given the special “state guests” status for this tour.
This is South Africa’s first visit to Pakistan since the 2007 tour when they won the Karachi Test by 160 runs to clinch the series 1-0. Later, they played series in United Arab Emirates in 2010 and 2013 instead of coming to Pakistan.
