Tillakaratne Dilshan is a street-smart cricketer with plenty of aggression. A sweet timer of the ball with sound technique, Dilshan is a good player of pace bowling. His international career started in the year 1999 with a bang, as he scored an unbeaten 163 against Zimbabwe in his debut Test. He is a sharp point fielder and a useful off-spinner. Dilshan spent time in and out of the side due to constant shuffling up and down the order but his revival as an international cricketer came in 2003. In 4 consecutive Test innings he boasted scores of 63, 100, 83 and 104. After 2007 World Cup, the all-rounder was dropped from the side but he made a strong comeback in the final Test against England with a gritty knock of 84 runs and ever since, has been an integral part of the Sri Lankan cricket team.
