Dilshan 193: Highest score by a Lankan at Lords

Dilshan 193: Highest score by a Lankan at Lords

Tilakratne Dilshan is gaining on his confidence in every match. The new skipper of the Sri Lankan team is leading from the front to take his team to a position of strength against England in the second Test. Dilshan's defiant 193 took Lanka to 372/3 against England's first innings total of 486.

Tilakratne Dilshan is gaining on his confidence in every match. The new skipper of the Sri Lankan team is leading from the front to take his team to a position of strength against England in the second Test. Dilshan's defiant 193 took Lanka to 372/3 against England's first innings total of 486.

Dilshan missed the double ton by a whisker may be along with the chance of becoming the first Lankan to post a 200 at Lords, but his 193 marked the highest by a Lankan on the ground. 253 deliveries with 20 boundaries and two over the ropes, Dilshan stood defiant most of the rain curtailed 3rd day's play living on the edge with his uppish cuts and square drives. But more than anything else, the will to survive and score rapidly forced England on the backfoot.

Sri Lanka perhaps is still not out of danger, especially after the way the fifth day turned out for them in the first Test when they were all out for a paltry 86 to lose the Test. But Dilshan's innings today can inspire the rest of the team to raise above mediocrity and snatch an improbable victory perhaps at Lords.

That's exactly what Royal Challengers are meant to be!

Hopefully if Dilshan remains in form - when champions league takes place RCB are definitely looking to take victory.

Dilly is an amazing player so he has to be more conscious about his batting in his national duties as well as his franchises, and if he show some consistency it will fentastic
