Shivam Dube’s pinpoint yorker dismisses Mohammad Naim: The rookie Indian all-rounder bowled a game-changing over in Nagpur.
During the third T20I of the ongoing Bangladesh’s tour of India in Nagpur, India all-rounder Shivam Dube bowled a pinpoint yorker to dismiss Bangladesh opening batsman Mohammad Naim.
It all happened on the third delivery of the 16th over when Naim’s attempt to back away and play a big shot off Dube’s yorker saw him getting bowled after playing a fantastic innings.
Opening the batting with Liton Das (9), Naim ended up scoring 81 (48) with the help of 10 fours and a couple of sixes. Him particularly attacking India spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was the pinnacle of his innings.
With India not playing all-rounder Krunal Pandya in this match, Dube had to bowl his full quota of overs. The 26-year old cricketer stood tall on his potential as he picked three wickets at key junctures in the match.
On the first delivery of his third over, Dube bowled Bangladesh wicket-keeper batsman Mushfiqur Rahim (0) to put India on the driver’s seat. Other than dismissing Naim in his following over, Dube also caught and bowled Afif Hossain (0) on the next delivery to totally change the course of the match.
Having bowled his full quota of overs for the first time in international cricket, Dube registered bowling figures of 4-0-30-3 while defending a 175-run target.
After Bangladesh captain Mahmudullah won the toss and put India in to bat, the hosts scored 174/5 on the back of individual half-centuries from Shreyas Iyer (62) and Lokesh Rahul (52).

Young Shivam Dube’s done the star turn for India with his bowling, keeping his nerve when India looked very vulnerable

Maybe a bit too early to say this… but quite impressive change of length/pace from Shivam Dube atleast in the current context. #IndvBan
