One of the positive aspects of tournaments like the IPL is the stage it provides for various cricketers to showcase their skills. Tushar Deshpande made the most of the opportunity on Sunday after beating Jonny Bairstow and Rilee Rossouw in one over to give CSK a dream start.

Ruturaj Gaikwad lost the toss for the tenth time in IPL 2024 and tried his best to engineer a 57-run second-wicket partnership with Daryl Mitchell before PBKS bowlers linked up with them again. However, a brave Ravindra Jadeja 43 helped them reach 167/9 in 20 overs. Defending a tricky total, CSK would have liked an early breakthrough and Deshpande did just enough to remove Jonny Bairstow and Rilee Rossouw in one over.

After a three-run first over from Mitchell Santner, Deshpande threw a good length delivery across the wicket to Jonny Bairstow on the third ball of the second over who tried to push the latter through the line. As fate would have it for the Englishman, the ball came in, whizzed along the inside edge and clattered onto the stumps. Two balls later, the Mumbai pacer produced another excellent delivery to help the ball flow through the gates of Rossouw and damage the furniture. Rossouw failed to assess the shadow of the bowler’s inside seam, henceforth paving the way for a double wicket, leaving Deshpande and the Twitterverse in ecstasy.
