Shivam Dube’s revival began when he joined MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings in the IPL. Known for his powerful hitting, Dube is staking his claim for a spot in the T20 World Cup squad after impressive performances against Afghanistan. He credits Dhoni’s advice to not attack short deliveries for his recent success.
After his unbeaten 63 off 32 balls in the second T20I, Dube emphasized his focus on the present moment and his gratitude for his natural talent and hard work. He also addressed his vulnerability to short deliveries and the effort he’s put into overcoming it.
He credited Chennai Super Kings and figures like Stephen Fleming and Mike Hussey for their support and guidance, and expressed his commitment to following MS Dhoni’s calm approach as a finisher against spinners.
