“I tried to invent ‘Dil Scoop’ and people tried to do a reverse sweep, switch hit” – Tillakaratne Dilshan

Tillakaratne Dilshan is known as an inventorDil Scoop. ‘More recently, Glenn Maxwell and Rishabh Pant have stunned fans and experts with switching and turn back.

At a virtual press conference, Tillakaratne Dilshan said about innovative cricket striking:

I think it’s really good after this T20 cricket that was introduced to the world. Young people want to do things differently. I tried to invent “Dil Scoop” and people tried to do the reverse cleanse, switch the punch. they oppose themselves. They have self-confidence which is why they do it. “

“The crowd really wants to see different things. I’m really happy that the newcomers are doing things differently,” the former Sri Lankan opener added.

On the same topic, former Sri Lankan versatile Farveez Maharoof described the reverse kick of the Indian goalkeeper-hitter Panta as “unheard of”. Pant drew a beat in rhythm Jofra Archer in the first T20 against England. Maharoof said of the shooting:

“I think it’s hard for bowlers to bow. If you see what Pant and Dilshan have done recently, it’s something unheard of. Bowling at almost 150 km / h has a loop for it. It’s the last moment when the bowler has to let go and then the player has to play a kick.”

Tillakaratne Dilshan is the winner of the Sri Lankan legend in the World Series on road safety. The team advanced to the semifinals of the event, winning five of six matches. Maharoof is also part of the Sri Lanka legends team.
