Tillakaratne Dilshan notched up his first century for Surrey with 115 against Middlesex in a Royal London One-Day Cup fixture at Lord’s in London on Thursday.

The 37-year-old Sri Lankan veteran made 100 off 120 balls to bring up his 25th List-A century, on which Surrey built their total of 289/9 on.

Dilshan bought up his century with a different variation of his trademark dilscoop, flicking the ball over his right shoulder and over the keeper’s head for a boundary.

The right-hander, who has retired from Test cricket, flew to England after the ODI series at home against South Africa last month to rejoin his English county after a stint with them earlier in the season.
