WERRINGTON Cricket Club have announced the signing of Sri Lankan opening batsman Thulina Dilshan for their upcoming ECB Cornwall Premier League campaign.

The 26-year-old, who currently plays for Sebastianites Cricket and Athletics Club in the First Class competition on the island, will arrive at Ladycross in April for his first stint in the UK.

Dilshan has made four centuries at professional level and is also a more than handy leg-spinner who will compliment the three off spinners they already have in Ben Smeeth, Adam Hodgson and Mark Taskis.
