Thusara Prabath Kodikara (born 17 November 1969) is a former Malaysian international cricketer who represented the Malaysian national team between 2004 and 2009. He was born in Sri Lanka, and played first-class cricket there in the 1990s before emigrating to Malaysia. Kodikara played as an all-rounder, batting right-handed and bowling right-arm medium pace.
Born in Kandy in 1969, Kodikara made his first-class debut for Central Province against Western Province Suburbs in March 1991. He played for a Central and North Western Combined XI against Pakistan A that August, and made his debut for Antonians Sports Club in a Saravanamuttu Trophy match against Kalutara Physical Culture Centre in October. In all, he played ten first-class matches that first year.
He played five first-class matches in 1992, including a match for a Sri Lanka Board President's XI. He made his List A debut in January 1993, playing for Antonians Sports Club against Colts Cricket Club, a month in which he scored 236 not out against Rio Sports Club, his highest first-class score.
He played his last match for Central Province in March 1994, and continued to be a regular member of the Antonians Sports Club side in first-class cricket over the next few years, rarely playing one-day cricket. He played his last first-class match in Sri Lanka in February 1999.
After finishing his first-class career in Sri Lanka, Kodikara moved to Malaysia. He first played for the Malaysian national side in February 2004, playing in the Stan Nagaiah Trophy series against Singapore. He played in the series again in 2005 and 2006, also playing in Dublin for the Dublin University Cricket Club in 2006.
