Profile

Mario Villavarayan was a talented fast-medium bowler who unfortunately missed out on making the big league. For nearly a decade after playing his first match for Sri Lanka A in 1994, he was always on the fringes of selection, but for one reason or another the break never came. He was consistently picked to play for Sri Lanka A both home and away, and also toured England with the Sri Lanka team in 1998. In afirst-class career which spanned for 12 years, Villavarayan took 378 wickets with career best figures of 9 for 15 for Bloomfield against Police in 1996-97. He also represented Colombo CC and Tamil Union in domestic cricket.
