Unique record for Tillakaratne Dilshan

DAMBOLLA: Sri Lankan opener Tillakaratne Dilshan made a unique record on Saturday during the first One Day International (ODI) against Pakistan by getting out three times in a single innings.

The tall guy Mohammad Irfan got Dilshan caught behind by wicket keeper Sarfaraz Ahmed off in his second over, but the umpire signaled no ball.

Taking advantage of the next ball free-hit, Dilshan scooped the ball high and was caught out again but he survived as the ball was a free-hit.

In the 27th over of the match, Dilshan, after scoring 38 runs was finally bowled by Muhammad Hafeez without any further drama.
