Profile

A slight, left-arm wristspinner from the outskirts of Colombo, Lakshan Sandakan's consistent hauls in first-class cricket have placed him among the Sri Lanka's best spin prospects. Operating off a shuffling approach and a quick action, Sandakan has the ability to turn the ball both ways, and skid it into the pad.
