Chennai Super Kings largely benefitted from the services of Shivam Dube in the sixteenth edition of the Indian Premier League. CSK assigned a specific role to Shivam Dube and the latter understood it very well.
He grabbed the opportunity in both hands and bolstered the team’s middle-order when it mattered the most. The left-handed batsman showcased his impressive ability to hit sixes and fours with relative ease.
The opposition teams did find it literally tough to stop Dube from going all guns blazing this season. There is absolutely no doubt that Shivam Dube will be retained by the CSK in the next season, given his fruitful performances this season.
Shivam Dube scored 228 runs through boundaries in IPL 2023
The left-handed batsman is having a breakthrough season wherein he scored 363 runs in eleven games for Chennai Super Kings in the ongoing edition of the IPL.
Shivam Dube scored 363 runs in 11 games at an average of 40.33. Moreover, he operated at an exceptional strike rate of 157.14. What really made his season ever so special is due to the fact that he dealt most of his deliveries by hitting sixes and fours.
It is worth mentioning here that he scored as many as 228 runs through boundaries, which has been really compelling. He has smashed 30 sixes and 12 fours this season. Notably, he is third on the list in terms of hitting the most sixes in IPL 2023.
Only Faf du Plessis (34) is ahead of Shivam Dube in terms of hitting most sixes this season. Shivam Dube and Glenn Maxwell have struck 30 sixes this season. Shivam Dube’s imperious form in middle-order is vital for CSK this season.
Currently, CSK are second on the table with 15 points from seven wins and one no result this season. They lost to KKR in the previous game and will have to win their next game against Delhi Capitals to qualify for the playoffs.

His game is completely changed.
People may not agree but he played in way more responsible manner than most of the middle order batter of Indian team …

Very good bowler of Spin. But, struggles to score against Pace. If he work on it and improve it. He can play for India also.
