Lalith Kaluperuma was an accomplished offspinner at domestic level when Sri Lanka was granted Test status. Also capable in the lower order with the bat, he failed to transfer his domestic form to the international arena. Playing in Sri Lanka's inaugural Test against England, one of three spinners, he was used sparingly as the two de Silvas, D.S. and Ajith, shared the brunt of the workload. Making the proceeding tour to Pakistan he was selected for the second Test at Faisalabad, again he was overshadowed by the de Silva's bowling only six overs in the match. He ended any
chances of further representative honors choosing to join the tour of to South Africa in 1982-83. He later became a national selector and headed the selection panel in May 2005, taking over from Ashantha de Mel.
