The Sri Lankan cricket team toured England from 8 May to 5 July 2016 for a three-match Test series, five-match One Day International (ODIs) series and a one-off Twenty20 International (T20I) against the England cricket team and two One Day International (ODI) against Ireland. England won the Test series 2-0, the ODI series 3-0 and won the one-off T20I match by 8 wickets.
They also played two first-class matches against Essex and Leicestershire prior to the Test series. The two first-class matches were both drawn and Sri Lanka won the ODI series against Ireland 2-0.
In April 2016, the ECB made a proposal that the series uses a points-based scoring system across all three formats, with both teams agreeing to the idea in principle. The following month, the points system was named Super Series. Four points were awarded for winning a Test match and two points for wins in ODIs and T20Is matches. There was a prize of £25,000, to be split amongst the players. England won the Super Series 20-4.
