Bio

Tillakaratne Dilshan can be every bit as destructive as the likes of David Warner or Chris Gayle when he gets going.

The batsman may not have a traditional technique, but he is regarded as one of the game’s great innovators and has been extremely effective with his own unorthodox style, including the scoop shot. 

Since making his one-day international debut in 1999 against Zimbabwe, Dilshan has notched more than 9000 runs across more than 300 matches.

The ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 will be his third appearance at the tournament and he will hope to replicate some of his big hitting from the 2011 edition when he was the World Cup leading run scorer. He amassed 500 runs from nine matches at the tournament including knocks of 144 and an unbeaten 108.

In addition to his destructive batting, Dilshan also bowls handy off-spin.
