Pakistan will play three one-day internationals and four Twenty20 internationals in South Africa during April, Cricket Africa announced on Friday.

The touring team will stay in a bio-secure environment and matches will be confined to two venues - SuperSport Park in Centurion and the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg.

The series will bring to an end a home international season heavily affected by Covid-19. England cut short a white-ball tour in December over fears about the virus and Australia withdrew from a planned three-Test tour which was due to take place in March.

South Africa recently completed a two-Test series in Pakistan and are currently involved in a Twenty20 series in that country.

Mohammad Rizwan's 64-ball unbeaten 104 helped Pakistan beat South Africa by three runs in the first Twenty20 international in Lahore on Thursday, taking a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
