Profile

With his relentless aggression, strong wrists and natural timing, Tillakaratne Dilshan is one of the most exciting batsmen in the game today. He is technically sound, but, much like Virender Sehwag, he uses the defensive option only as a last resort, after all the attacking alternatives have been explored. He loves to make room and thrash the ball through the off side, but the stroke that bears his signature more than any other is the one he developed for the 2009 ICC World Twenty20 - the eponymously named "Dilscoop" shot over his head, which confounded bowlers and experts alike.

Timeline
    • November 18, 1999
      International debut
      • Dilshan makes his first appearance for Sri Lanka in a Test against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo. Makes just 9 in his only innings, but effects a run-out and takes two catches in the match.
    • November 28, 1999
      Dilshan announces himself
      • Just ten days later, on day three of the Harare Test, Dilshan scores an unbeaten 163. He shows admirable restraint as Zimbabwe curtail his favourite pull and cover drive and, although he plays and misses frequently, Dilshan bats for a minute under eight hours, facing 343 balls and hitting 18 fours.
    • December 11, 1999
      One-day debut
      • After his successful debut Test series, Dilshan plays his first ODI also in Bulawayo. Batting at No. 6, he makes 35 from 49 balls in a washed-out encounter.
