No. Not because he is not good, but because the other Fernandos have jumped ahead of him.

Asitha Fernando, the right-arm quick, who took 7 wickets on debut for SL A v Pakistan A in England, bowls a superb fourth stump line with a lot of menace, and was in the Test squad v Australia.

While Vishwa Fernando, the left-armer seamer, made his debut v Australia as Galle, even though he only bowled 4 overs.

Anuk Fernando, the all-rounder, bowls whippy left-arm at good pace, and he is in SL As squad v West Indies A.

Which leaves the tall, talented left-armer Binura the fourth Fernando in line.

Poor Binura,being a Fernando yet cant make to the team may be becoz he isn't from a missonary school.

He should come in for ODIs & T20s ahead of Lakmals Thisaras

Even for Tests,if Prasad/Chameera fails to recover in time.Being tall lefty with swing he is a much better option than Lakmal Eranga Kumara & other 2 F'dos

Well I think he is a good option but he last time he played an international match, he was bowling 120-130kph. Despite his awkward bounce I don't think it will trouble many batsman at test level. If he has increased his pace, then I would like to see him included.
At the moment, I think all of the other Fernandos (Asitha, Anuk and Vishwa) as well as Lahiru Kumara and Lakmal bowl faster than him.
Good prospect but he is still young and can get a bit faster.
