Whilst it may represent the positions of the field where the ball will travel from an ideally-struck example of the shots labelled, there are other shots which can be played resulting in the ball travelling in the same area.

Now the white empty area shown on this map has also become a common scoring area, specially with the introduction of the 20twenty format of the game and the shot is named after the present Sri Lankan opening batsman T.M Dilshan as "Dilscoop".
