The Sri Lanka women's cricket team played the Australia women's cricket team in September and October 2019.[1][2] The tour consisted of three Women's One Day Internationals (WODIs), which formed part of the 2017–20 ICC Women's Championship, and three Women's Twenty20 International (WT20I) matches.[3][4] It was the first bilateral series played by Sri Lanka Women in Australia.[5]

In the third and final WT20I match of the series, Australia's Alyssa Healy set a new record for the highest individual score in a Women's T20I match, with 148 not out.[6] Australia won the WT20I series 3–0.[7] Australia won the first two WODI matches to take an unassailable lead in the series. Their win in the second match was their 17th win in WODIs in a row, which equalled the record for most consecutive wins in the format. The victory also confirmed Australia as the winners of the 2017–20 ICC Women's Championship.[8][9] Australia went on to win the third WODI by nine wickets, winning the series 3–0, and setting a new record for the most consecutive wins in WODIs, with 18.[10]
