Bio

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

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

Since making his one-day international debut in 1999 against Zimbabwe, Dilshan notched more than 10000 runs from 330 ODIs.

Dilshan finished his Test career 5492 runs from 87 matches with a high-score of 193 and and average just shy of 41.
