About

Shivam Dubey has established himself as a household name with his big hitting abilities, having smashed 5 sixes in an over in a Ranji Trophy game playing for Mumbai against Baroda in 2018-19. Swapnil Singh was on the receiving end and this was the second time that he had done this! In the Mumbai T20 League earlier in 2018, Dube took the Wankhede Stadium by storm having blasted experienced leggie Pravin Tambe for 32 runs in an over, which was the first time that he hit 5 sixes in an over. It's no surprise then that the legendary Sunil Gavaskar rates him highly, calling him "India's cleanest hitting left-hander since Yuvraj Singh." After veteran allrounder Abhishek Nayar was dropped from the Mumbai Ranji Team, Shivam Dube really staked his claim as their first choice pace bowling all-rounder.

He made his First class debut for Mumbai in the 2017-18 Ranji season before scoring his maiden century in November 2018. He already has five-fors to show for his bowling credentials and his 4 overs would come in extremely handy for captain Virat Kohli. Time will tell whether he's able to justify the price tag of INR 5 crore that we spent on him ahead of VIVO IPL 2019 but he's got the bearing of being a superstar for his franchise as well as India!
