New Delhi: Sri Lankan opening batsman Tillakaratne Dilshan has reportedly been tested positive in a dope test conducted by the International Cricket Council (ICC) during the ongoing World Cup.

Sri Lankan local media reported on Wednesday that the ICC had selected Tillakaratne Dilshan for its random dope test a few days back and on Wednesday he was tested positive.

Dilshan is only the second cricketer to have been tested positive during the World Cup after Australian spin legend Shane Warne had been tested positive during the 2003 World Cup.
