The Sri Lankan cricket team are scheduled to tour the United Arab Emirates from October to December 2019 to play two Tests, three One Day Internationals (ODIs) and three Twenty20 International (T20I) matches against the Pakistan cricket team. The Test series will form part of the inaugural 2019–21 ICC World Test Championship.

In May 2019, at the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) meeting in Singapore, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) made a request to Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) to play the two Test matches in Pakistan. In March 2009, the Sri Lankan cricket team was attacked by gunmen ahead of the second Test match at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, and have not played in Pakistan since. In July 2019, the SLC sent a security expert to assess the situation in Pakistan, with Sri Lanka Cricket saying they were "likely" to play a Test match in the country. A further decision will be taken by Sri Lanka after a security delegation inspects venues in Lahore and Karachi in early August 2019. The delegation gave Sri Lanka Cricket "very positive feedback", suggesting that Sri Lanka could be open to playing a Test match in Pakistan.
