Tushar Deshpande overview

Tushar Deshpande is an Indian cricketer who was born on 15th May 1995in Mumbai. He is a right-arm medium pacer and a left-hand batsman.

Tushar wanted to become a genuine fast bowler from young age. His dream was to bowl at 140 kmh. But what he did not know in his early days that he was flat flooted which could cost severe injury to leg, hip and back also. So he needed special drills and training along with corrective footwear to develop a normal arch. Deshpande was in 7th grade when he knew about his open trails at the Shibaji Park and his parents took him for the admission. Deshpande had lived in Kalyan that time, around 50 Kilometers from his academy. Every day, he had to go to school in the early morning, returning home in the afternoon and start for practice traveling via express train. If he had not been able to avail express train then he had to pick up crowded local trains, standing most of the days with heavy kit bag in front of the door for almost an hour. His parents realizing about the terrific pressure their son used to bear every day, moved to Mumbai so that Tushar would not have to feel any pressure while going to practice ground.
