IPL 2023 CSK vs RCB, Watch Shivam Dube’s Spectacular 111-Meter Six
IPL 2023 CSK vs RCB, Watch Shivam Dube’s Spectacular 111-Meter Six – In Today’s IPL match between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Chennai Super Kings (CSK), RCB won the toss and opted to bowl first. CSK managed to score 53 runs, losing one wicket in the process. Ajinkya Rahane was dismissed after scoring 37 runs off 20 balls, with Wanindu Hasaranga taking three fours and two sixes. Devon Conway and Shivam Dube took advantage of the loose deliveries, with Shivam Dube gradually getting into the groove.
Devon Conway dominated the right-arm speedster Vijaykumar Vyshak in the 12th over, scoring 16 runs by hitting 2 fours and 1 six. He took calculated risks and was a force to be reckoned with.
Earlier in the power-play overs, Mohammed Siraj, the right-arm pacer, claimed the crucial wicket of Ruturaj Gaikwad, dismissing him for just 3 runs in 6 balls. The pitch was a batting paradise, leaving very little for the bowlers to work with.
After 12 overs, CSK’s score stood at 123-2. Harshal Patel was bowling the 13th over, and on the second delivery, he bowled a full toss on off-stump. Shivam Dube took full advantage of it and smashed a massive six, sending the ball soaring toward Long on for a distance of 111 meters.
Despite Harshal Patel’s slower delivery, it was not effective, as Shivam Dube appeared to anticipate it and moved deep into the crease. At that point in the game, CSK’s score was 129-2 in 12.2 overs, and it seemed that they were on track to set a target of over 200 runs. Devon Conway had scored 72 runs off 40 balls, adding to the team’s total.
IPL 2023 CSK vs RCB, Crucial Phase for RCB
It would come as no surprise if CSK goes on the attack from this stage, as they have plenty of batters waiting in the dugout. All eyes will be on Shivam Dube, who has shown great hitting prowess and needs to capitalize on this strong start in this high-intensity match.
Perhaps skipper Faf du Plessis needs to bring back Mohammed Siraj for an over, as taking a wicket at this point would put CSK in a difficult position. RCB is aware that chasing a target of over 200 runs won’t be easy, despite the batting-friendly conditions, as CSK has the services of Moeen Ali and Ravindra Jadeja at their disposal.
