Lahiru in schools Under-15 team
Fourteen year old Lahiru Sudesh Perera of little known Sri Sumangala
College, Kandy, was the only cricketer to be selected to the schools
Under-15 team for the tour of Malaysia for the tri-nation cricket
tournament which is held in Kuala Lumpur every year.
Lahiru Sudesh Perera
Kandy and its suburbs has a number of schools playing in the schools
Under-15 cricket tournament. Some of them are big schools with a long
history of cricket and with better amenities but it only Lahiru Perera
who gained selection for the national Under-15 team.
Lahiru Perera is good medium pace bowler and a fine middle order
batsman who scored heavily at the last year's Under-15 tournament. He
also represented the Kandy District Under-15 team under Hansamal Perera
and emerged inter-district champions, last year.
By being the only player to be selected for this tour from a Kandy
school, Lahiru Perera stands above the rest. He is coached by former St
Sylvester's College and Kandy Schools all-rounder Ranjith Colombage.
