The Pakistan Cricket Board and Cricket South Africa have announced a bilateral limited-overs series for this month.

The proposed tour was forgone earlier this week, after a legal crisis saw the Islamabad High Court suspended chairman Najam Sethi and the five-member interim management committee on Thursday.

However, a subsequent ruling has allowed the interim management committee to function pending the case's verdict.

"We are really happy to have a full international fixture list for the 2013-14 season with five Test matches, six ODIs and five T20 International matches," said CSA chief executive Haroon Lorgat.

"This was important for our team as they prepare for global events and for our fans and stakeholders who have been fantastic in supporting us through a difficult time.

"We have also done our best to give all our venues a fair chance bearing in mind that we have practical and logistical issues to deal with."
