Originally, the tour was scheduled to include a one-off Test match and three T20I matches. However, the Test match was cancelled, with another T20I match added to the tour itinerary. Cricket Ireland made the decision based on the lack of context for the one-off match, and the costs associated of hosting it. A planned home T20I series against Afghanistan was also cancelled by Cricket Ireland. Cricket Ireland confirmed the fixtures for ODI series in December 2019. In December 2019, Cricket Ireland looked at the possibility of hosting the T20I matches in England. In February 2020, the T20Is were confirmed to be taking place in England, along with the dates for the four matches. The venues in England were confirmed the following month.
