South Africa have agreed to play an additional Twenty20 cricket match against Pakistan to raise funds for the country's flood victims.

The worst floods in decades have killed at least 1,600 people and left more than four million homeless.

The Proteas will now play Pakistan in two T20 internationals, five one-day internationals and two tests in Abu Dhabi and Dubai during October and November.

The Pakistan team, after beating England in the third Test at the Oval in London over the weekend, donated part of their match winnings to flood victims.
