Kagiso Rabada, the backbone of the fast bowling attack of Delhi Capitals, has praised the young Tushar Deshpande for his heroic bowling execution against Rajasthan Royals. On Wednesday, the young Indian pacer and other bowlers of the Delhi-based team gave a brilliant performance in Dubai. The Delhi bowlers figured out how to secure a win for the team despite scoring below-par runs.
Tushar Deshpande picked two crucial wickets during the match against RR. He picked up the first wicket of none other than the dangerous player of RR, Ben Stokes. Deshpande picked up the wicket of Stokes just when Stokes was approaching his fifty runs. The substitute fielder, Lalit Yadav, caught the ball hit by Stokes. Later on, he picked up the wicket of Shreyas Gopal to guarantee his second wicket on his IPL debut.

Kagiso Rabada was all praises for the young pacer, impressed by his bowling effort.
“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.”

After coming to bat first, Delhi Capitals could score just 161 runs in 20 overs at the loss of seven wickets. Shikhar Dhawan and DC captain Shreyas Iyer scored splendid fifties for the Delhi-based team. The DC bowlers were perfect as they figured out how to defend such a low score taking wickets of RR frequently.
Delhi Capitals and Mumbai Indians are involved in an interesting race to lead the IPL 2020 points table. Again, DC has ousted Mumbai Indians and placed itself on the top of the ongoing IPL points table. Playing in 8 games so far, DC currently has 12 points and leading the IPL race.
Then again, Mumbai Indians aren't far behind as they are in the second position with 10 points having played in seven games. Mumbai Indians will next play against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), and if they win the match, they may go to the top of the table.
