Tushar Deshpande: Future Of Indian Bowling?

Tushar Deshpande is one of the uncapped Indian players picked this season at the Mega Auction by Chennai Super Kings (CSK). CSK vs KKR’s opening match of this season at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai will be his debut match for Chennai Super Kings.



He has played only just 5 matches till now in his IPL career for Delhi Capitals in IPL 2020 edition where he picked 3 wickets and made 21 runs.

In a video by CSK shared on their Social Media, Tushar was telling:

“To be honest, I never expected to be a part of the CSK squad just one season after having been a net bowler for them. After the conclusion of IPL 2021, I could see big improvements in my bowling and my approach towards the game, which I would attribute to practicing with big players during my stint as a CSK net bowler.”

Deshpande also said that:

“Bowling to top international players made a huge difference to my game, which I applied in the domestic circuit as well. Whatever I have learnt here bowling to the likes of MS Dhoni, Ambati Rayudu and other foreign players, I have successfully applied in the domestic cricuit and subsequently saw great results.”


Chennai Super Kings acquired him at the base price of ₹20 lakhs in the IPL 2022 mega auction. They bought him as a replacement for Deepak Chahar who got injured in the last T20I against West Indies at Kolkata. With Chahar’s injury, Tushar has a crucial role to play for CSK this season.

Tushar Deshpande Hoping To Repay The Trust

He was shy at first last year when he was the net bowler for CSK but the management and experienced players like MS Dhoni, Ambati Rayudu, and Coach Fleming took care of him like a family and made him comfortable.

He continued:

“One thing that comes straightaway in my mind is family. Even when I was a net bowler last year, I felt a bit nervous because I have never been a net bowler for any franchise before. But the way they treated and handled me was actually like a family. So that is the thing that stands out for CSK.”
