He further showcased his talent earlier this year, taking 15 wickets in five matches for India A against England A.

Joining elite group with BCCI

Deshpande is not alone in receiving a fast-bowling contract. He joins a group of talented quicks, including Mayank Yadav (Delhi & LSG), Akash Deep (Bengal & RCB), Vijaykumar Vyshak (RCB), Umran Malik (Jammu & Kashmir & SRH), Yash Dayal (Uttar Pradesh & RCB), and Vidwath Kaverappa (Karnataka).
