The New Zealand cricket team are currently touring Sri Lanka in August and September 2019 to play two Test and three Twenty20 International (T20I) matches. The Test series will form part of the inaugural 2019–21 ICC World Test Championship. The fixtures for the tour were confirmed in July 2019. Originally, the first two T20I matches were scheduled to be played at the R. Premadasa International Cricket Stadium in Colombo, but were moved to the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Kandy.

Sri Lanka Cricket named a twenty-two man squad for the Test series, which was trimmed down to the final fifteen cricketers.
