A confidential source within the Sri Lankan team has revealed to us why Tillakaratne Dilshan started playing the Dilscoop shot.

A few years back in June 2009 in ICC World Twenty20, Dilshan was in great touch and was driving the ball down the ground handsomely as can be seen in the picture below.

After a few overs, there was a drinks break and after that he was seen scooping the deliveries behind the wicket which were very similar to those he had been driving down the ground. And with that a new cricketing stroke was innovated which later became famous as Dilscoop.

Our source reveals that he started playing scoop shots because apparently, he didn’t want to want to violate any traffic rules, especially like the ones which say Don’t Drink and Drive.
