Dilshan, who will turn 40 in October, was in his elements with his famous ‘Discoop’ and he said retirement was not in his mind. “If I’m playing like this, I don’t think about retirement. I’m enjoying and chill about my batting. I’ve not decided yet about retirement. But you never know, one fine morning after I get up, I might think otherwise. But at the moment I’ve no plans.”
On his batting form, he said: “There’s nothing special. I’m doing the same thing. I have had some bad games in the Asia cup and in New Zealand. But I don’t think I’ve to change my technique. Nothing has changed much, I just need to focus.” The Eden Gardens track might have come for a lot of praise after it produced a belter when Pakistan got past 200 in their big win over Bangladesh on the same track but Dilshan said it was a bit slow. “It was a bit slow and not easy to play spinners. I wanted to bat as long as possible. It’s not easy to chase 150. They put up a very good total. They batted well, especially their captain. It was not an easy target to chase.”
