Shivam Dube in an Indian cricketer who plays for Mumbai in domestic cricket. He is a right-arm fast bowler and has a decent ability with the bat as well. He was bought by RCB in the 2018 IPL auction and has stayed with the franchise since then. In October 2019 he got his maiden call-up for the Indian side for a T20 series against Bangladesh. Later the same month he was named in the ODI squad against West Indies as well.

There was news that RCB was set to trade Due in 2019 but later the Indian team call changed things. He was brought for a whopping price of Rs 5 Crore by RCB but his performance had put the management in question. The management will be glad that they decided to stick with him as his performance in the 2020 season is being noticed. Dube helped the side win the opening match against SRH with the ball as well as a little with the bat.

His figures with the ball in that match read 2/15 and he scored 7 runs with the bat. Skipper Kohli appreciated his composure against SRH and his skills. It will be important for Shivam to perform for his side so they can win as many matches to qualify after having a tough season last year. The player from Mumbai will be hoping to be that one all-rounder for RCB which they have been missing for quite some time now.
