Avishka Gunawardene, who was appointed Sri Lanka A's coach for their tour of England in July, has earmarked a few young players for the senior side.

Among them were Charith Asalanka, who led the country in the Under-19 World Cup earlier this year, fast bowler Asitha Fernando, who picked up 11 wickets at an average of 16.45 in the same tournament.

The Sri Lankan team is set to play 2 four-day matches against Pakistan A in England and a 50-over tri-series with the hosts joining in.

Gunawardene said that he was "appointed coach only for this tour", but would prefer to have more time to help the next generation of Sri Lankan cricketers.
