Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are all set to clash against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on 21st April (*Friday). CSK currently are placed in 3rd position with 6 points from 5 matches. Shivam Dube‘s turbulent knock of 52 runs in 27 balls helped CSK to post a mammoth total of 226-6 against RCB. Shivam Dube has shown immense striking ability, it looked as if he was toying with the bowlers.

CSK would be pumped up after pulling off a close contest against RCB against the run of play. MS Dhoni would be slightly worried as once again the bowlers were taken to the cleaners. The absence of Ben Stokes & Deepak Chahar (*both are injured)

I thought of fulfilling the role assigned to me- Shivam Dube

Shivam Dube was having an interaction with CSK’s social media handle. Shivam Dube stated that MS Dhoni had backed him to come good against RCB in IPL 2022 when the team was in a state of bother at 36-2. Shivam Dube has scored 95 runs in 46 balls with 5 fours & 8 sixes.

“In 2022 we were playing RCB and lost a few early wickets. I thought of fulfilling the role assigned to me. And like Mahi bhai told me, ‘This is your role, do well in this department rest will take care of itself.’ So that’s what I thought, let’s back my strengths and not be bothered about the results,” said Shivam Dube.

“So like captain told me earlier, ‘Just think about what the bowler is going to bowl, your skills will take care of the rest’. So I followed his advice and didn’t overthink. Last ball, the thought of scoring 100 crossed my mind but then I decided to focus back on see the ball and hit the ball,” he added.

Exciting Contest on Cards

SRH would take a leaf out of RR’s win over CSK at Chepauk. SRH needs Mayank Agrawal to give the team a rollicking start as there is too much pressure on Harry Brook. There is no doubt that SRH have got a dangerous bowling line up but the batters aren’t performing according to their credentials.

CSK on the other hand would be considering bringing back Mitchell Santner into the playing 11. The left-arm spinner has got foxy variations and can also be used as a floater. It won’t be a surprise if we witness 10-12 overs of spin against SRH’s batting lineup.
