Legspinner Vijaykanth Viyaskanth first rose to prominence in December 2020, when he became the youngest player at 18 years and 364 days to feature in the Lanka Premier League for Jaffna Stallions. In that tournament, he also became the first born-and-bred player from Jaffna, in Sri Lanka's northern tip and once the epicentre of a three-decade-long civil war, to appear in an internationally televised game.

He made his Sri Lanka debut at the Asian Games in Hangzhou. He also impressed with eight wickets in four outings at an economy of 5.43 for title winners MI Emirates in the ILT20 tournament. He has also represented Chattogram Challengers in the Bangladesh Premier League.

He got a first chance at the IPL when he was picked up as a replacement player in the 2024 season by Sunrisers Hyderabad.
