South Africa add game for Pakistan flood relief

Durban: South Africa have agreed to play an additional Twenty20 match against Pakistan to raise funds for the country`s flood victims, Cricket South Africa (CSA) announced on Thursday.

The worst floods in decades have killed at least 1,600 people and left more than four million homeless.

The Proteas will now play Pakistan in two T20 internationals, five one-day internationals and two tests in Abu Dhabi and Dubai during October and November.

"Our hearts go out to the people of Pakistan," CSA Chief Executive Gerald Majola said in a statement.

"This is only a small contribution but we hope it will play some part in alleviating the suffering of the Pakistani people."

The Pakistan team, after beating England in the third test at the Oval in London on Saturday, donated part of their match winnings to flood victims.
