A few hours after he was appointed Sri Lanka skipper for the tour of England, Dilshan tried his hand at goalkeeping during a football match at Royal Challengers Bangalore's training session at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Teammate AB de Villiers, who played alongside the Sri Lankan all-rounder for two seasons with the Delhi Daredevils, feels he has all the attributes to make a good captain. "Dilshan's been a good player.

When you're the captain it's not just about playing your own game, but also working together with the team and being a good leader. Dilshan has those qualities," he said.
