Colombo, Dec. 4 (Daily Mirror) - The selectors of Sri Lanka Cricket have selected Sineth Jayawardena of Royal College Colombo to lead the 15-member Sri Lanka Under-19 team for the forthcoming ACC Men’s U19 Asia Cup, scheduled to be held from December 8–17 in three venues in Dubai.

The team comprises players who were members of the team, namely skipper Jayawardena, his deputy Malsha Tharupathi, Dinura Kalupahana, Vihas Thewmika, Garuka, Sanketh, Vishwa Lahiru, Pulindu Perera, Ruvishan Perera, Rusanda Gamage, Sharujan Shanmuganathan, Ravishan Nethsara, and Vishen Halambage, who tasted success against the West Indies U19 played at home soil and Pakistan U19 played in Pakistan. Also coming into the team are hard-hitter Hirun
Kapurubandara and all-rounder Dinuka Tennekoon.

The players underwent strenuous training at Pallekele under the guidance of head coach Jehan Mubarak, his assistant Sampath Perera, fast bowling coach Chamila Gamage, spin coach Sachith Pathirana, and fielding coach Gayan Wijekoon.

Former Sri Lanka player Jayantha Seneviratne will accompany the team as manager.

The tournament will see eight teams in the fray, which are divided into two groups of four each, and will kick off with the first match between defending champions India and Afghanistan, while runner-up Sri Lanka will play their first match against debutants Japan on November 9.

The matches are scheduled to be played in three venues, namely ICC Academy Oval 1, ICC Academy Oval 2, and the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

    Dubai has no cricketing culture, so why we are all always agreeing to play matches there. Dubai is simply bribing all the officials and corrupting this world.

    Ranil will be happy. He makes cricket thieves happy and they in turn make Ranil happy.

    The former minister of sports failed miserably to dislodge the crooks because of his stupid bull in a china shop approach. End result, baning of SL cricket by ICC and a court case. He should have changed sports law fist

    When there is no diversity in selection there is no improvement in progress. This country never learns

    Obviously you must be from one of the mariya kadey schools. Otherwise why would you ask such an idiotic question.
