South African players were satisfied with the arrangements of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and PIA. The players share their words about the top-notch facilities and security provided to them on their historic tour of Pakistan.

PCB arranged chartered flights for the Proteas to move within the country for the Test and T20I series. All the arrangements were planned by keeping in view the COVID-19 pandemic.

South Africa is touring the country for the first time since 2007. The two-match Test series has already concluded, while the three T20Is are scheduled to begin from 11 February.

South Africa Test squad has traveled back to the country. Meanwhile, the T20I squad has already arrived in Lahore to report to the bio-secure bubble set up by the PCB.

The South African team management has revealed that Quinton de Kock will now focus more on his focus on his batting and wicket-keeping. For this very reason, he will be at ease with his duties as captain. They will announce the new captain soon.
