Dilan is a talented and explosive batsman currently playing first class cricket in Sri Lanka for Burgher CC. He started his cricketing career at Trinty College in Kandy. In the 2015/16 he was the first school boy from the Central Province division to score 1000 runs. These impressive displays saw him selected for the Textered jersey company side later that year in their premier Mercantile tournamant. In 2016 he was part of the Sri Lankan under 19 team that played for a Sri Lankan presidant X1. He also was selected for the Sri Lankan under 19 team for the tour of England.

His solid performances saw him snapped up by the powerful Sinhalase sports club as team full of internationals for the start of his first class career. He played for Sinhalese for a number of years before moving to Burgher CC for a guaranteed opening batsman spot. Dilan is also a useful right arm off spinner bowling with confidence. The highlight of his first class career to date is the 203 not out against Kandy in August 2022.

He comes highly recomended by fellow WSX client Duvindu Tillakaratne and would represent a outstanding option for any club looking for a quality young batsman with an excellent future ahead of him.
