The series comprises of three T20 Internationals, three ODIs and three Tests, and will start on 23 September with the T20 Series.

The PCB will host their first ever Day Night Test, from 13 to 17 October in a match to be played with the pink ball under lights at the Dubai Cricket Stadium.

The West Indies will also play a three-day first class game under lights in Sharjah against the PCB Patrons XI as part of the preparation for the Day Night Test.
