Islamabad:Pakistan Cricket Board has asked South Africa 'A' to supplant New Zealand 'A' in a triangular One-day tournament along side world champions Australia 'A' in September this year.

According to PCB sources, it was learnt that New Zealand 'A' side were extended an invitation to feature in a triangular tourney but due to lack of positive response to the invitation, the Board were left with little option but to put in a request to South Africa to fill in as the third team.

Meanwhile, Cricket Australia had given its seal of approval for sending its 'A' team to Pakistan in September-October where they are slated to play an unofficial Test series against the Pakistan 'A' besides the tri-series.
