KARACHI: The South Africa cricket contingent, which is due in Pakistan next month on a Test & T20I tour, will use the facilities at the Karachi Gymkhana during their stay at the local hotel in Karachi.
“Since the Karachi Gymkhana will be adjacent to the team hotel therefore the facility would be conveniently encircled into the bio-secure bubble”, a PCB official told this correspondent.
“During the quarantined period the South Africa team will be training at the ground in the Karachi Gymkhana”, the official added.
