Both teams will play three ODIs and three T20s between August 28 and September 10.

The ODIs will start at 6:00 p.m. local time to counter the extreme daytime heat in the UAE. The T20 games will begin at 8:00 p.m.

Pakistan have been forced to host their home matches at neutral venues since gunmen attacked a Sri Lanka team bus in a fatal assault on 2009.
