IPL 2020: Kagiso Rabada, Shikhar Dhawan Praise Debutant Tushar Deshpande

Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje inflicted the vast majority of the injury on the Rajasthan Royals, but it surely was the debutant Tushar Desphande who dismissed Ben Stokes at a really essential time.


Senior bowler Rabada and stand-in captain Shikhar Dhawan heaped reward on Deshpande, who completed with two wickets.

“Deshpande is a youngster who has a lot of passion for the game. He has talent and hunger and it didn’t look as if it was his first game. He has a lot of work to do and could be a real talent for India in the future,” Rabada stated.

“Courage he (Deshpande) showed, line and length he bowled was amazing,” Dhawan stated.

Reflecting on the bowling partnership with Nortje, teammate Rabada stated that they each assist one another out.

“(On bowling with Nortje) We learn a lot from each other. He is a real fast bowler and I can learn some technical stuff from him. I have some experience which I can tell him about. It is good to chat.”


“(On Nortje’s 156kph delivery) It looks like that every game. Really happy for him but not happy for the batter. Maybe when we have a drink tonight he might slip a comment through. When we play we only think about the delivery and not about the speed gun.”

While Delhi will rejoice an all-round efficiency they may even fear about Shreyas Iyer, who needed to go off with a shoulder damage.

“He’s (Iyer) in pain but his shoulder is moving. We’ll get proper report tomorrow,” Dhawan stated.
