Junior National selectors have picked Rajan paceman Lahiru Samarakoon for the sri Lanka side for the likely World Cup team for the forthcomming triangular Under 19 cricket tournament to be played in Sri Lanka early next month. One player from Trinity too is selected besides two others as standby.
It is after some time since a Rajan was selected to this team. Before that, a Rajan happened to be included in this side for several years. Some of them were, Pubudu Seneviratne, Ratnayake and Chamara Kapugedera, all of who did well on these tours. It hoped that Lahiru too will show his colours in this tournament.
