Deshpande eyeing a breakthrough 14.2.2018 Deccan Herald - News
For most of his career, Pavan Deshpande has been watching from the outside as Karnataka cricket touched some unprecedented heights. With the State team blessed with enormous batting resources, the soft-spoken left-hander has mostly missed the bus or done substitute duties when he made the trip. Now with a couple of players busy with international duties and a few of them recovering from injuries, the door has opened slightly for the 28-year-old. Aware such chances may not come knocking again, the Dharwad-born Bengaluru-based player is determined to make the most in a season thats coming to an end. In the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy, Deshpande has struck two back-to-back half-centuries -- the first a 51-ball 53 in a losing cause against Punjab and the second a brutal 37-ball 54 that saw Karnataka hammer Odisha. This follows a decent Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy outing where he scored 116 runs in three games, including a half-century. Deshpande acknowledged this is a make or break time for him. "Opportunities ...
