The Sri Lanka cricket team toured Australia in October and November 2019 to play three Twenty20 International (T20I) matches.[3][4] In May 2019, Cricket Australia confirmed the fixtures for the tour with matches being held in Adelaide, Brisbane and Melbourne.[5][6] Aaron Finch was the captain of the Australian team, while bowler Lasith Malinga captained Sri Lanka.

In the opening match played at Adelaide, Australia recorded their biggest victory in a T20I match, winning by 134 runs off the back of a century by David Warner. They scored 233 runs for the loss of two wickets, before restricting Sri Lanka to 9/99 in their twenty overs. The following game in Brisbane, Australia won by nine wickets, winning the series with a game to spare.[7] Australia won the final match by seven wickets to win the series 3–0.[8] Australian batsman, David Warner ended up with the top run-scorer for the series with 217, and Pat Cummins was the leading wicket-taker with six dismissals.
