Profile

Loukaracchchi is unfortunate that he belongs to an era where there are two other right-arm legspinners are also vying for a berth in the national team. The presence of Upul Chandana and Malinga Bandara meant that 'Loku', as he is referred to by team-mates, had no place in the national team which also has the inimitable offspinner Muttiah Muralitharan.
