Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) have agreed to postpone the planned tour by the Proteas to Pakistan for a series of T20 worldwide matches.
While the PSL reaches its conclusion South Africa will be playing three one-day internationals in India, which ends on March 18.
South Africa will play three ODIs, the last of which is on March 18, and the PCB had meant to make them stay in Dubai - with the PSL ending on March 22 - and then fly them directly to Pakistan for the three T20Is in Rawalpindi.
The Pakistan Cricket Board wanted to sneak in the short series against South Africa, before the start of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020.
"This has been done purely because of the heavy workload and worldwide schedule our players are facing in the immediate future", said Faul.
The tour of India will complete a busy worldwide programme for South Africa, which started with four Tests against England.
CSA was due to send a security delegation to Pakistan next month to assess arrangements ahead of the tour, cricket website ESPNcricinfo reported.
PCB CEO Wasim Khan said that the CSA's decision based on the player workload was "understandable", and added that the two boards will reschedule the tour at a later date.
"While we were keenly looking forward to hosting South Africa next month, we respect Cricket South Africa's reason for not sending their side next month". He was keen to emphasise CSA's decision to skip the tour in March did not mean these internationals would not take place, and expressed the PCB's willingness to organise a window for them as soon as possible.
