Fans on Twitter reacted after Indian batsman Shivam Dube failed to set the stage on fire in the ongoing game against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2024. The game between the two arch-rivals is underway at the County International Cricket Stadium from Nassau in New York.

Shivam Dube, who was named in the Indian squad for the 2024 T20 World Cup over Rinku Singh, looked absolutely clueless on the field with the bat in the ongoing game against Pakistan at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York.

Shivam Dube came in to bat after India lost Suryakumar Yadav for 7 runs in the 12th over of the game. The batsman was expected to shoulder the responsibility and take his team to the fighting total, bailing them out of trouble, especially after four opening wickets.

However, this was not the case as Shivam Dube also failed and India was left reeling. The all-rounder, who looked magnificently tough in the first phase of the Indian Premier League (IPL) for Chennai Super Kings, died against Naseem Shah in the second ball of the 12th over.

Naseem Shah bowled a long ball that bounced high and hit Shivam Dube high off the bat. The ball darted and went to the left of Naseem Shah, who caught it easily to take his third wicket of the game against India.

Shivam Dube was not at his best as he managed just 3 runs off 9 balls. He has been struggling to get going with the bat since the second half of IPL 2024. His scores since May 2024 are 0, 0, 21, 18, 7, 14, 0* and 3.

After Shivam Dube’s wicket, India were left reeling at 95/5 and after his wicket, nothing went in favor of the Rohit Sharma-led team. They lost wickets and went all out for just 119 runs at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York.
