Profile

Known for his ability to generate awkward bounce from a height of 6'7", and swing the ball, Binura Fernando has been among the leading schoolboy-cricket names over the past two years, claiming 84 wickets in the 2013 season. A left-arm seamer, Fernando was called up to Sri Lanka's Test squad during the 2014 home series against Pakistan despite not having played first-class cricket. He was chosen largely on the strength of his performances for DS Senanayake College and the Sri Lanka Under-19 team.
