The match would have been the team's first return to the Asian country since the 2009 attack on the Sri Lanka tour bus caused it to be blacklisted as a venue. The series will comprise three T20 matches on March 29, 31, and April 1 and all the matches will be played in Lahore.

The last global match played at National Stadium was the first Test between Pakistan and Sri Lanka during the 2009 series, following which there was an armed attack on the Sri Lankan team bus, the incident that led to Pakistan being shunned by visiting teams.
