Cricketer Dilshan obtains Australian Citizenship

Former Sri Lanka Cricketer Tillakaratne Dilshan has obtained Australian Citizenship.

Australian MP Jason Wood had posted the following on Dilshan obtaining Australian Citizenship.

Today’s citizenship ceremony was made even more special with the attendance of Tillakaratne Dilshan, a former Sri Lankan cricketer and captain of the Sri Lanka national cricket team. 

Dilshan is regarded as the best Sri Lankan player in run-chases in ODI history. He also holds the record for being the top run scorer in the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup with 500 runs and scored a century against England in the semi-final. Additionally, he was part of the Sri Lankan team that won the 2014 ICC World Twenty20. 

As a new Aussie and local resident, we hope he decides to join a local team and continue to share his talents with the community.

It was great to hear that his daughter Resandi is following in her father’s footsteps.
