New Delhi. In the T20 World Cup 2024, India is considered the favorite this time as well, like every time. Looking at the 15-member team of Team India, big cricket pundits are claiming that the team is one of the strongest contenders to win the title. Shivam Dubey’s playing in the playing-11 of the Indian team is also considered certain. In this IPL season, Dubey, playing for Chennai Super Kings, scored 396 runs in 14 matches at an average of 36. During this, his/her bat scored runs at a strike rate of 162.29.

The big question here is how Shivam Dubey, who was struggling to make a place in Team India till two years ago, suddenly became so important for Rohit Sharma and company. Its story is also very interesting. Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s role has been very important in making Dubey’s career. At one time Dubey’s season strike rate used to be just 122.85. Before IPL 2022, when Dubey was going through a bad phase in his/her career, on Dhoni’s request, CSK spent a huge amount of four crores on Dubey and added him/her to the team.

Dhoni handed over a big responsibility
Shivam Dubey used to bat in the lower middle order and was known for slow batting. There was a time when Dubey faced 100 out of 120 balls in the Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament. Dhoni gave Dubey the responsibility of playing at number-4. Michael Hussey said while talking to ESPN Cricinfone that once Dubey’s role was decided, Dhoni and CSK head coach Stephen Fleming started working with him/her. Hussey said that he/she was initially not aware of the plan, but once he/she started working with Dubey, he/she saw some qualities in his/her game.

Changed the way of batting in the middle-order
Usually in T20 cricket, the role of cricketers in the middle overs is to keep rotating the strike, but Dhoni and company gave a new responsibility to Shivam Dubey. Dhoni saw a glimpse of his/her middle overs spin hitter in Dubey. Hussey said that Dubey is not the best hooker and puller, but he/she has found a way to avoid getting trapped against the short ball. When Dubey stays at the crease, he/she sometimes forces the opponents to bowl the death bowler early instead of the spinner, which benefits CSK as a team.
