Dil se Dilshan!

Dil se Dilshan!

When Dilshan does it he does it dil se!

And when he does a doubly whammy, it means the opposition, better watch out. This world cup, Sri Lanka was looking for something special from the opener. He was getting the start, but was unable to convert them. Not surprising that he was overshadowed by his colleagues like Mahela Jayawardane, Kumar Sangakkara. But today, against Zimbabwe, the day belonged to Dilshan. And he announced his arrival with a bang - hammering 18 runs off the second over of the day. 16 boundaries, one 6 later Dilshan amassed 144 runs for himself and 289 for the team. Out of that 282 came with his opening partner Upul Tharanga who himself made 133. A full stop to the onslaught came in the 46th over, but before that throughout his innings, there wasn't any comma or a semi-colon. It was punctuated by only controlled aggression and deep understanding with his partner Tharanga.

If his innings and the partnership took Sri Lanka to setting a target of 327 for Zimbabwe, his slow off-spinners then decimated the Zimbabwe middle order. 3 overs 4 runs and 4 wicket was his haul, a sweet end to a fairytale return to form. Fairytale for Sri Lanka, but its a perfect recipe for a complete horror for the opposition. Especially just before the knock out stage of the World Cup. Suddenly, now the rest of the teams have to get really worried about a man possessed, a Royal Challenger Dilshan.

Truly, Dil se!
