Astle made his solitary appearance for New Zealand in a Test against Sri Lanka in 2012 and has yet to play an ODI or T20 international.
New Zealand's new-ball pair took out Sri Lanka's top four wickets inside 14 overs to give the visitors a big chance of leveling the series on day five.
Astle averages 22 with the bat in New Zealand's domestic first-class competition and has taken 127 wickets at 34.79 with his leg breaks.
