Dilshan looking to score big

Missing out a couple of games after a bruised knuckle, Tillakaratne Dilshan proved his prowess by putting on a promising show against Rajasthan Royals a couple of days ago at the M Chinnaswamy stadium.

His 25 was crucial in Royal Challengers Bangalore’s run chase but the Sri Lankan hoped to convert the next innings into a big score to end his dry spell.

“I came here with lot of confidence after scoring a lot of runs in the ODIs against Bangladesh. Unfortunately, I could not score runs in first two matches of this season,” said the opener during the pre-match press conference here on Monday.

“In the last match against Rajasthan I was very confident after I scored 25 and I was keen to get more runs but I am disappointed that I got out. I am just looking forward to get one big score.”

Each of the five the RCB’s wins have come at home and by the looks of it, the trend is going to remain uncontested. “Yeah, definitely we know the conditions much better than other teams,” said Dilshan when asked about their run at home.

“We have played a lot of games and we know how to adjust batting on this wicket. We are also playing good cricket in all departments. That’s why we are so successful here.”

When asked if any changes can be expected for the game against the Pune Warriors, the 36-year-old said: “I don’t think so. Saurabh Tiwary came in for the last game and he gave us good balance.

We have two left-handers now (Chris Gayle and Tiwary) so that makes life a little harder for oppositions. We have to adjust to different conditions and teams. So far, we are really doing well. I think we should continue with this good work throughout the tournament.”
