What happened to Dilshan?

I don’t like the new Dilshan.

Where is the dude that struggled for runs and looked like he was always going to offer us more than he delivered.

Now its all scooping and 100s.

Too predictable in my book. It used to be quick fire 30s and then some spectacular run out or something. Now its just mindless amount of runs over the top and magical willow wielding in power plays

We already have a dude who did does that Thank you very much Mr. Dilshan. Talk about a copy cat.

I like my dose of Dilshan with more promise than actual deliverance.  At least it was more exciting than all this mind numbing tom foolery.

Back to the death trap that is the Sri Lankan middle order for you I say.

    I blame the IPL and Sehwag!

    Seriously though, since he moved up the order he has been unstoppable.

    Dilshan appears as the boogieman in every bowler’s nightmares. In fact, SL team bowlers are afraid to bowl to him on the nets, as the damage he does to their psyche can be irreversible.

    Chavie>Samaraweera doing the starfish is just cool beyond words

    KitKat> I am loving nothing.

    MTJag> Splendid Mendis may have been bowling to him quite a bit in the recent past then.

    Sohail> Come now, Im Sure he will come out to bat. Whether he lasts any amount of time is another matter.

    What is all this nonsense, about his new life with his second wife, I am sure his first wife was not behind his freaky way of getting out earlier ?
