The Indian Premier League 2023 tournament ended on Monday (May 29). After 2021, Chennai Super Kings once again engraved their name on the IPL trophy. MS Dhoni’s Chennai won their fifth IPL title by defeating Gujarat Titans by 5 wickets. Young fast bowler Tushar Deshpande played a major role in Chennai’s success this season. He recently commented on his performance this season and captain MS Dhoni.
Tushar, who plays domestic cricket for Mumbai, was selected by Chennai in their team last year. At that time he got a chance to play only two matches. This time, however, he was placed in the final 11 from the first match. He also became the first impact player in history. During this season, he was contributing to Chennai team’s victory by taking wickets time and time again. Talking about his experience, he said,
“It was truly an unforgettable experience. Winning the IPL is a dream come true. I missed this opportunity while playing for Delhi. However, this time the honor of being the winner has been earned.”
Talking about captain MS Dhoni, he said,
“In the first match itself when I was giving more runs he came to me. He said currently 200 runs will be easy due to impact player rule. Don’t worry about your place in the team. A young player expects the same kind of support. I just went through the season doing the same things he was telling me to do. He stands behind the player like a soldier in tough times. I knew he wouldn’t give a single wrong piece of advice.”
Tushar is the highest wicket-taker for Chennai this season with 21 wickets. In 2020, Tushar was a part of the Delhi Capitals team. At that time Delhi was defeated by Mumbai Indians in the final match.
