The nine-team Twenty20 tournament was moved to the United Arab Emirates last month due to the political and economic crisis in Sri Lanka, which retained the honor of the hosts.
Pakistan defeated India by 10 wickets in the T20 World Cup match in Dubai last year.
Dubai hosts 10 matches, including the final on September 11, while three will be played in Sharjah, ACC president Jay Shah, who is also secretary of the Indian cricket board, said on Twitter.
