Inventor of the 'Dilscoop'
Former Sri Lanka captain Tillakaratne Dilshan was born on October 14, 1976 at Kalutara.
An attacking batsman, Dilshan is technically sound and though he plays shots on both sides of the wicket, is best known for his 'Dilscoop' - a shot that he developed for use in the 2009 World Twenty20. The 'Dilscoop' is a shot that pitches the ball over the wicketkeeper's head.
