Before the tours of Australia and South Africa, Pakistan will host Bangladesh and England for two and three Tests, respectively.

This means they will play seven Tests, a minimum of 10 ODIs, and six T20Is in the six months from August 2024 to January 2025.

Since 1994–1995, Pakistan has traveled to South Africa for seven Test tours. They prevailed in two Test series: the 1997–98 and the 2006–2007 ones.

Pakistan defeated South Africa by 29 runs in the 1997–1998 Durban Test thanks to centuries from Azhar Mahmood (132) and Saeed Anwar (118), nine wickets for 149 from Mushtaq Ahmed, and a five-wicket opening stand from Shoaib Akhtar.
