South Africa not averse to playing Pakistan

Johannesburg: South Africa says it will honour its series against Pakistan later this year, unless instructed otherwise by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Cricket South Africa (CSA) released a statement on Monday saying it "has received numerous queries" regarding the status of the series in the United Arab Emirates beginning on October 27.

CSA chief executive Gerald Majola says, "The tour of Pakistan is part of the ICC Future Tours' Program, which we have to honour, unless instructed otherwise by the International Cricket Council. As such, the tour will go ahead as planned."

CSA says it won't comment on the current fixing scandal surrounding the England-Pakistan series.

South Africa will play Pakistan in two Twenty20 internationals, five one-dayers and two Tests.
