Tillakaratne Dilshan will spend two spells with Derbyshire over the coming season after the Division Two county announced the signing of the experienced Sri Lanka batsman.

The 38-year-old will be available for up to four NatWest Twenty20 Blast fixtures and two LV= County Championship matches when he takes the overseas berth from New Zealand international Martin Guptill in June.
