Fernando in SL squad
Teenage fast bowler Asitha Fernando has been included in the Sri Lanka squad for the Test series with Australia.
The 18-year-old has been brought in to the squad from Sri Lanka A tour of England along with fellow seamer Vishwa Fernando and left-arm spinner Lakshan Sandakan.
All of that trio are uncapped, as is batsman Roshen Silva, who has earned a place in the squad following recent strong form with Sri Lanka A.
Roshen scored a century against Durham last month and posted a half-century versus Pakistan A this month.
All-rounder Dhananjaya de Silva -- who has one ODI cap and two Twenty20I appearances to his name -- will be looking to make his Test bow in the series.
Milinda Siriwardana is left out despite scoring two half-centuries and taking 11 wickets in his first five Tests. There is also no place for Lahiru Thirimanne.
The experience in the fast-bowling attack comes from Nuwan Pradeep and Suranga Lakmal, with Dhammika Prasad and Dushmantha Chameera injured and Shaminda Eranga suspended.
