Pietersen compares ‘Yuvraj’ with CSK star in four words
IPL 2023 Once again there is a lot of potential for the Indian selectors, with not only up-and-coming players proving their mettle, but also a host of young talents who have shown they can hit straight away. Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen watched the two of them in the first half of the ongoing season and compared one of them with the legendary Yuvraj Singh in a mind-blowing remark.
Pietersen, amazed with the emergence of home-grown talent so far in IPL 2023, draws a surprising comparison between Yuvraj and Chennai Super Kings‘ Latest star, Shivam Dubey. Like the former India all-rounder, Dubey is also left-handed and also a medium pacer, although MS Dhoni is yet to utilize his bowling services.
Pietersen’s comments came after Dube’s impressive first half of the season, where he scored 236 runs in seven innings at a strike rate of 157.33 with three fifties. He is leading CSK in the middle overs as the team is third on the points table after nine matches.
“It is also appalling that some homegrown talent has gone under the radar. CSK’s Shivam Dube raves a lot about Yuvraj Singh. He is a fair, reasonable player, Peterson wrote in his column for Betway.
Dubey’s third half-century came during CSK’s match against Rajasthan Royals at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Thursday. He scored 52 off 33 balls to chase down the target of 203, but the visitors failed due to lack of support from the other end.
Dubey has previously played in 14 limited-overs matches for India, although only one of those came in the ODI format. In 2019, Dube was seen as a back-up to Hardik Pandya in the T20I format but he failed to impress in his 13 matches and was out of the reckoning for the last time he played for India in 2020. Went.
