Cricket career

Mark Ray played for New South Wales in the 1981-82 season, before moving to Tasmania, where he played for Tasmania from 1982-83 until he retired after the 1985-86 season. He also captained Tasmania on five occasions, becoming Tasmania's 40th captain.

A left-handed middle-order or opening batsman, and slow left-arm orthodox bowler, he was a capable all-rounder, although his batting relied on a limited range of strokes and his bowling on accuracy and flight rather than spin. His highest first-class score was 94, for Tasmania against Western Australia in 1983-84. His best bowling figures were 5 for 79, for Tasmania against New South Wales in 1985-86, in his second-last match.

He later became a cricket author and journalist, working for many years at The Age in Melbourne.
