Shivam Dubey scored 31 runs not out India beat USA and qualified for Super 8

New Delhi. Team India's experienced all-rounder Shivam Dubey batted brilliantly against America. He played a match-winning innings in the 25th match of the T20 World Cup 2024. Shivam Dubey, along with Suryakumar Yadav, took the team out of trouble. Regarding batting on the Nassau County pitch, Dubey said that it seemed as if we were playing Ranji Trophy. He admitted that he had a lot of trouble adjusting to this wicket of Nassau. This explosive batsman of Chennai Super Kings (CSK) played an unbeaten innings of 31 runs off 35 balls in difficult conditions in the match against America and played an important role in India's 7-wicket win.

Shivam Dubey said about the consecutive failures against Ireland and Pakistan at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, 'I was struggling with form and was focusing on the process. There was no pressure on me. All the support staff and coaches supported me and told me, 'It is difficult, but you have the ability to hit sixes, so keep trying. I never doubted myself about what I have done in the past. I just feel that these conditions do not demand what I did for CSK. These conditions require a different approach, so I was batting differently today.'

Shivam Dubey has been given preference over Rinku Singh
Dube still has a long way to go to justify his selection ahead of Rinku Singh, another power-hitter in the reserves. After making it to the World Cup squad, Dube could only manage 36 runs in five innings in the IPL. His troubles continued in the World Cup as well, where he failed in three matches (14 in the practice match against Bangladesh, zero against Ireland and three against Pakistan) before finally playing a restrained innings on Wednesday.

Chasing a small but difficult target of 111 runs to win, India were in trouble after losing three wickets for 44 runs. Dubey also faced difficulties and his timing was not good in the initial few balls. He took six balls to open his account. After scoring nine runs in 15 balls, he managed to hit an 87-meter long six off Corey Anderson in the 5th over. Dubey joked about waiting for the six and said, 'It felt like playing Ranji Trophy. I was not thinking about the white ball format. Conditions decide how you have to play here. You have to choose your best shot to hit a six. I was waiting for that opportunity.' The Indian team will take on Ireland in its last league match on Saturday.
