Default SL picks teenager without FC or List A experience!!

http://www.espncricinfo.com/sri-lank...ry/590453.html

SL have included a 19 yo spinner who hasn't even played a FC or List A match in their Test side. Is this a sign of the thinness of talent in SL beyond the older generation? He's just a U-19 player, and one who was well handled by the likes of Anamul and Asif who scored 101 and 84 respectively in that match.

So if a teenage bowler who was dominated by Anamul and Asif is ready to debut for a G8 Test side, then why do some of us think that 19 year olds who can one-up such bowlers aren't ready to suit up for a 9-10th ranked Test side?
