Karachi: Pakistan hope to play a one-day series either in South Africa or Australia after the postponement of the Champions Trophy they were scheduled to host this Sept.

The board is deliberating with South Africa and Australia after the tournament was postponed Oct 2009.

"We feel that our team needs exposure in foreign conditions and, with the postponement of the Champions Trophy, we believe we can now have an overseas series with the cooperation of other boards," PCB, COO, Shafqat Naghmi said on Monday.

"The South Africans have responded well to our proposal because, frankly speaking, I think most of the countries realise that Pakistan cricket has suffered a big setback with the postponement of the Champions Trophy."

The ICC rescheduled the eight-nation tournament on Sunday after England, Australia, New Zealand and West Indies said they would join South Africa and pull out of the competition because of security fears.
