Mithra Wettimuny's cricket career was brief - of his nine first-class appearances, two were Tests, only one was in Sri Lanka, and they spanned a little over four months in 1982-83. A diminutive top-order right-hand batsman, he scored fifty on his first-class debut in Zimbabwe, but failed to do so in any of his remaining outings. Despite this, he was selected to tour New Zealand, making his two Test appearances on that tour where he managed 28 runs in four innings. They were his last first-class matches. In the first of these games he opened the innings with his younger brother, Sidath - only the third instance of brothers opening together. Their older brother, Sunil, also played for Sri Lanka before they gained Test status/
