Tillekaratne Dilshan has been a batsman who hasn't been able to get many runs in this series so far at a time when all others are having a party against the Pakistan pitches and a mediocre bowling. However, this changed when Dilshan joined the camp like his other colleagues and stroked his way to a well-made and rapid century. At the start of day two, Dilshan was partnering Thilan Samaraweera and both took to attack Pakistan bowling early. Dilshan took the lead role in his partnership for the fifth wicket with Samaraweera as both combined to add 207. Dilshan contributed 107 and Samaraweera 92. The feisty right-hander who also had a good time against Pakistan in the one-day series stroked some delightful drives during his knock. The attractive thing about Dilshan's innings was that he batted at a fast pace reaching his fifty off only 52 balls and completing his hundred off only 109 balls. This was his eighth Test, hundred and one which would give him lot of confidence as he strives to cement his place in the side after being a regular feature in limited overs cricket. Dilshan batted with confidence and even played the shorter ball well, to which he was found susceptible in the first Test. His pull shot ability was the highlight of his innings. Dilshan was unfortunately run out soon after tea for 145 off 170 balls including 21 fours at a strike rate of 85.29, which enabled Sri Lanka to post another humungous total of 606 to put Pakistan under pressure.
