ICC T20 World Cup 2024: CSK Head Coach Praises Shivam Dube, And Compares Him To Legendary Kapil Dev! The T20 World Cup is on, and cricket fans are glued to their screens! India’s set to play their first match against Ireland on June 5th.

But before the action starts, there’s some interesting chatter from the coaching zone. Chennai Super Kings’ head honcho, Stephen Fleming, is raving about Indian all-rounder Shivam Dube!

Kapil Dev Vibes From Shivam Dube?

Fleming, speaking to ESPN Cricinfo, said, “Watching Shivam Dube bowl is like seeing a glimpse of Kapil Dev in his prime! He’s put in a lot of hard work on his bowling, even during the IPL when he focused on practicing his pace attacks.”

Impact Player Rule: A Missed Opportunity?

Fleming feels Dube is one of those rare players who can excel as an all-rounder. But thanks to the new Impact Player rule, he might not get a full chance to showcase his skills. “It’s a bit of a bummer,” Fleming added.

Dube’s Potential: A Threat On Slow Pitches?

Fleming believes Dube can be a real weapon under the right conditions. On slow pitches, his ability to bowl sharp cutters and slower deliveries could prove very effective.

Dube: A Valuable Asset?

“Shivam Dube can be a crucial player for the team, and he’s put in the yards to get there,” said Fleming. “The key is how they use him. With the Impact Player rule, his role was limited to attacking spinners.”
