Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Friday said that their cricket team will be unable to tour Pakistan in March due to a scheduling conflict but promised the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) that they will send the Proteas at the most convenient time possible. 

PCB CEO Wasim Khan said that the CSA's decision based on the player workload was "understandable", and added that the two boards will reschedule the tour at a later date. 

"We respect CSA's reason for not sending their side next month. Managing player workload is a top priority for any cricket board, and from that perspective, their decision is understandable," he said. 

"There is a strong willingness and commitment, and both the boards are now exploring their Future Tours Programme to find gaps so that we can agree on the dates.”
