"MS Dhoni Worked Personally With Him": Ruturaj Gaikwad On CSK Star's Incredible Rise | Cricket News

Shivam Dube has worked on his weakness against the short ball quite well and it has a lot to do with the fact that Mahendra Singh Dhoni has personally worked with the burly Mumbai man, Chennai Super Kings skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad said on Tuesday. Dube played a key role as CSK defeated Gujarat Titans by 63 runs in an IPL match. The left-handed batsman hit five sixes in his 23-ball 51 after his 34 not out in the opening win against RCB and the most striking feature in his game is how he manages the shortball.

Early in his career, the short ball had become his shortcoming, but this season the transformed Dube has managed that well, even if he looks a little uncomfortable.

“Just confidence. When he came here, the management worked with him personally, Mahi bhai worked with him personally. He knows what role he plays and which bowler to take on. A big plus for us,” Gaikwad praised his big hitting game. -changer.

Dube also spoke about the freedom the CSK leadership has given him and he has worked hard to stay prepared for the short balls now that a few bouncers are allowed in each over.

“This franchise (CSK) is something different from all the others. They give me freedom. They want me to do better and I also want to win some matches,” said Dube after winning the ‘Player of the Match’ price.

It’s not just survival, but Dube has also attacked short balls like never before in these two matches, albeit with mixed results.

“I have been working that way. It helps me. I know they will bowl me some short balls and I am ready for that.” He also claimed that the team management had advised him to do the same thing match after match – take on the bowlers.

“They want me to do the same thing I did today. They want me to score with a higher success rate and that’s what I’m doing.” For his captain, Tuesday’s victory was the result of an almost flawless performance.

“Today’s match was almost perfect, in terms of batting-bowling-fielding, all three departments. Against a team like Gujarat, we had to deliver this kind of performance,” Gaikwad said.

We were outplayed, Gill acknowledges

Gujarat Titans skipper Shubman Gill had no hesitation in admitting that his team was completely outplayed by Chennai Super Kings, with the home team’s bowlers executing the plans to the ‘T’.

CSK won by 63 runs to top the table with four points from two matches. The big win also gave their net run-rate a big boost.

“They beat us when we were batting, their execution was perfect. We backed ourselves to get a decent score in the Powerplay and when we failed to do so, we always played catch-up. It was a shame for us,” said Gil. during the post-match presentation ceremony.

Gill said he expected a total of 200 runs given the hard bouncy nature of the track.

“In T20 you can always talk about 10-15 runs here or there, ultimately what matters is how much they got. On this wicket we expected to chase 190-200. I think it’s a great learning experience for the bowlers .” For Gill, it is better to face an opposition like CSK early on than later.

“I think it’s better to play these kind of matches early in the tournament rather than mid or late. We always expected to chase 190-200, it was a really good wicket. It felt like we let ourselves down left while hitting.”
