Product description


I have played with and against Dilshan for many years now, and I would have to say that he is exactly the type of player I would want on my side and exactly the type of player I don't want to be facing. He is a wonderful sportsman and competitor who will always put his team first, and who's pride in playing for Sri Lanka shines through as much as it does for whoever he is representing. This book is the story of a true, world class cricketer. --AB de Villiers - South African cricket captain

Tillakaratne Dilshan is a remarkable man and cricketer. He's one of the finest and most exciting players that Sri Lanka has ever produced and I am proud to have shared a dressing room with him. A fighter and uniquely strong character who loves playing for his country and never gives up, he is at his most dangerous when nobody else has given him a chance. He has been a true match-winner for the country. It is in this way that his book truly represents him. --Mahela Jayawardene - Sri Lancan cricket captain

A lot of people have already forgotten how significant a player Dilshan is in Sri Lankan cricket history. The book will make people see the human side of it and odds he had to climb vividly. It is an important book, from that angle. The Lahore attack, that crowded train ride that almost had him in an accident, in particular stands out. All in all, it's a good book, besides being enjoyable. --Jaideep Varma - Film maker, broadcaster, cricket statistician and inventor of the Impact Index.
