This is Tillakaratne Dilshan‘s last ODI match and the Sri Lankan bowlers are looking set to give him a grand finale at Dambulla. He made 42 runs in his last ODI match and fell on the 19th over off Adam Zampa. Zampa was the top wicket-taker for his side. Many players have voiced their opinion saying that Dilshan should be given a grand farewell for what he has done for the game of cricket. Jayawardene and Sangakkara took to Twitter to voice their opinion about the same. Sangakkara also said that Sanath Jayasuriya and Dilshan have been the “greatest match-winners” for Sri Lanka over a long period of time.
