Mumbai-based Delhi Capitals pacer Tushar Deshpande made an impressive IPL debut, taking 2-37 in his team's 13-run win over Rajasthan Royals (RR) in Dubai on Wednesday. But despite contributing to the team's victory, the young fast bowler is not too satisfied with his performance. "It's a great feeling to contribute in a crunch situation and help the team win, but I won't say that I'm satisfied with my performance because I believe, once you are satisfied, your progress stops. I want to be among the wickets more often and win more matches for my team," Deshpande, 25, told mid-day from Dubai on Thursday.
Interestingly, Deshpande did well to make a comeback in his maiden IPL outing. He went for 11 runs in his first over with Ben Stokes hitting him to the fence twice.However, in his second over, he dismissed the Englishman, who was well set on 41, having him caught by substitute fielder Lalit Yadav at long-on.
