South African cricket team against Pakistan in the UAE in 2013–14South African and Pakistani cricket teams in the UAE in 2013–14 – First, they did not only play each other, Pakistan played the UAE team too. Second, if one team is given with nationality (South African), the other one (Pakistani) should be too for consistency. As the naming convention for the national teams are "[Country] national [sport] team" (South Africa national cricket team and Pakistan national cricket team), rather than "[Nationality] national [sport] team", I was tempted to suggest country names instead of nationality, but given that this would affect several pages, I'll let the discussion decide.

  • Comment / mild oppose - I think it is phrased as it is because Pakistan was notionally the "host" for the series - it would have ordinarily been in Pakistan, and titled "South Africa cricket team in Pakistan in 2013–14" but because of security concerns, the two sides had to meet in the UAE instead. So I think having some sort of nod to that, rather than implying that both are there equally on neutral soil, is probably a good idea.  — Amakuru (talk) 14:36, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
    • Ok, I see your point, but the Pakistani did also meet the UAE, so it was not only Pakistan against South Africa. Do you have a better suggestion? HandsomeFella (talk) 14:49, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
      Not really! If you are very certain that you want the move to go ahead, then I don't really have any objection. Just thought I'd make the point about Pakistan being the notional "home" team for most of the games, in case that wasn't obvious to anyone...  — Amakuru (talk) 22:35, 13 December 2013 (UTC)
