Three-time ICC Umpire of the Year will officiate in all the three ODIs as well as the first and third T20I, while he will be the third umpire for the second T20I.

The ICC has appointed Prof. Javed Malik, a member of the ICC International Panel of Match Referees, as the match referee for the series.
