The Sri Lanka A cricket team is a national cricket team representing Sri Lanka. It is the 'second-tier' of international Sri Lankan cricket, below the full Sri Lanka national cricket team. Matches played by Sri Lanka A are not considered to be Test matches or One Day Internationals, instead receiving first-class and List A classification respectively. Sri Lanka A played their first match in February 1991, a 45-over contest against England A.

Sri Lanka A have played a number of series, both home and away against other national A teams, and competed against other first-class opposition.
