West Indies to host Pakistan, Australia, South Africa in home season


South Africa will play two Tests and five Twenty20 Internationals in the West Indies from next month, the start of a busy home schedule for the host, officials confirmed on Friday.

Australia and Pakistan will also tour the Caribbean for a combination of Tests and limited-overs matches between June and August.

The 20-over games will be an ideal tuneup for all sides just months out from the T20 World Cup scheduled to be played between October and November.
