AP Sri Lanka's Tillakaratne Dilshan walks back to the pavilion after his innings during the 3rd day of the second test match at Lord's cricket ground, London, Sunday June 5, 2011.

Sri Lankan captain Tillakaratne Dilshan became the seventh cricketer from the island nation, to feature in Lord’s Hounour’s Board, courtesy his big century in the drawn second Test against England.

By slamming a majestic 193, the big-hitting opener not only surpassed Sidath Wettimuny’s long-standing record for the highest score by a Lankan at the hallowed cricket ground, but also joined the likes of Aravinda de Silva and Dileep Mendis, whose names also feature in the prestigious list.

Besides the two former stars, others Sri Lankans in the list include Amal Silva, Rumesh Ratnayake, Marvan Atapattu and Mahela Jayawardene.

Ratnayake, who registered a five-wicket haul during the team’s tour way back in 1991, is the only Sri Lankan bowler to feature in the list.
