Shivam Dube has been a revelation for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League 2023. The southpaw has scored important runs for the team at the no.3 batting slot.
He played another aggressive innings in the latest IPL match against Delhi Capitals. Batting on a slow track, he hit three sixes to accumulate 25 off 12 balls.
Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan feels he can play Dhoni’s role after the retirement of the CSK captain.
“I know MS Dhoni is a big name, but they have Shivam Dube, who can take his place. He is ready, and it is good news for the four-time champions,” he said.
Earlier, MSD won the toss and elected to bat first. The home franchise put up 167/8 in 20 overs. CSk bowlers then restricted DC batters to 140/8.
Ravindra Jadeja was named the Player of the Match for his all-round performance. Jadeja amassed 21 runs and took a wicket.
