-Its very annoying, for a bowler – one minute you think you’ve bowled a good ball and got the batsmen in a weirdo tangle, the next, the ball has somehow found its way to the very fine leg boundary
-Its confusing, for the fan – there you are sitting back and enjoying a nice 2020 game and all of a sudden you are thinking, what the fuck was that, did the batsmen just trip over? did the ball even hit the bat? But its all good cuz it went for four. But still, confusing.
-It would be hard to argue that it is a MCC sanctioned cricket shot. We are sure it exceeds some bent elbow limit and breaks a sub section of a subsection of a law somewhere. No ones found it just yet.
-It’s a shot that should only be used in backyard cricket. I mean its ridiculous to go down on one knee, and flick a fast bowler over your head. In backyard cricket it’s fine, but in a international ? Its just not cricket.
-Technically this shot is flawed and all over the place. You don’t make use of your top hand at all. Bottom hand shots are so uncultured.
-It kind of resembles a javelin throw- in reverse
-In the very least the bowler can be warned before the ball that he will play this shot.
-Lastly people calling this Dilshans trademark is not on and and plain wrong. It’s is all a bit outdated as his name is already TM Dilshan. We would think your very name being a trademark is good enough.
For all the reasons above we propose the Dilscoop be banned from cricket for all eternity or until Larry King dies, which ever comes sooner.
