2018-Sep-20 | By News Admin

Former Sri Lankan allrounder Thilakaratne Dilshan has indicated the possibility of his return to international cricket to revive the Sri Lanka cricket team.

In an interview with a local radio station, Dilshan had indicated his willingness to return out of retirrement, as the current Sri Lankan team is struggling. 

Dilshan, who retired nearly three years ago, had said he wanted to play until 2019 World Cup, but had to reture due to "some issues". 

The 42 year old former all-rounder had not played any competitive cricket after his retirement. If he comes back, he will be the oldest international cricketer in the world. 

However, Dilshan recently took part in an 'Ice Cricket' tournament, alongside his former team mate Mahela Jayawardena. 

This came a day after the Manager of the Sri Lanka Cricket team, Charith Senanayake,  apologized to the public  over the manner in which his team played in the Asia Cup series. 

“Perhaps the hardest bus ride ever. Return from Abu Dhabi, extremely unpleasant and absolute torture," Senanayake said, explaining the sentiments within the Sri Lankan unit after the humuliating defeats against Bangladesh and Afghanistan, the newest test playing nations of the ICC. 

Many former Sri Lankan cricketers, commentators and critiques  have already expressed disappointment with the performance of the national cricket team.
