Expensive yet effective: The rise of Tushar Deshpande in the CSK squad

CSK have depended a lot on their bowlers in IPL 2023.

One particular bowler has grabbed most of the headlines this season — Tushar Deshpande. 

He is currently third on the Purple Cap list with 19 wickets in 11 matches. 

Although he has been criticised for being expensive this season, his effectiveness cannot be doubted. 

In the whole season, the pacer has taken only one tailender's wicket out of 19!

He has gotten some big scalps, including that of Shubman Gill, Rohit Sharma, Tim David, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shikhar Dhawan, among others.

He started the season on a poor note, giving away unnecessary no-balls, but has been prolific among the wickets.

Hence, it is no doubt that the bowler has won the confidence of skipper MS Dhoni, despite being expensive.
