PBKS vs CSK: ‘Shivam Dube wants Rinku Singh to replace him in World Cup squad’ – Twitter reacts as CSK star gets back-to-back ducks

Shivam Dube

Shivam Dube has really cursed him. The Chennai Super Kings all-rounder, following his selection in India’s 15-man squad for the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, has registered his second consecutive duck after his selection.

It seems that the trend of performing poorly after being picked for the T20 World Cup has become a trend. During Chennai’s ongoing reverse clash against the Punjab Kings in Dharamshala, Shivam Dube left the crease to duck on the first ball. He suffered the same fate as during the previous match against Punjab.

4 days ago in Chepauk, it was Harpreet Brar who caught his leg before the wicket and today another leg-spinner Rahul Chahar got rid of Shivam Dube. Chahar launched a Flying delivery, full and out that flew off the deck.

Shivam Dube had fallen behind and wanted to free his arms but ended up with a fine outside edge which was caught tightly behind the stumps by Jitesh Sharma.

If he goes to USA and West Indies with the same kind of form in the T20 World Cup, it will be very bad news for the Indian team. After all, he was tasked with playing a key role in the middle order for which Kolkata Knight Riders’ Rinku Singh was rejected from the team.

Before these two golden ducks, Shivam Dube had done well for the Chennai Super Kings. He had scored 350 runs in 11 matches with a strike rate of 170.73 and an average of 40+ with a best of 66*. He has also racked up 3 half-centuries along the way.

On his poor performance once again, here are some of X’s best reactions:
