Seems like the upcoming star of Mumbai cricket has already kissed the big stage with a bang. In a Ranji Trophy encounter, the lad hit five sixes on five consecutive deliveries to have taken a huge notice of the IPL franchise owners.
Shivam Dubey is a right-arm medium fast bowler who plays for Mumbai in the Ranji Trophy. Aged 25, Dubey has shot to fame for his hard-hitting capabilities. In the Vijay Hazare Trophy, he smashed the bowlers around the park and made a huge contribution with the ball too, taking 3/29 in the final encounter versus Delhi. Though his bowling has been called a weak link in the Mumbai line-up, he has improved by far.
The 25-year-old sensation is a left-handed batsman.
Dubey whose base price was Rs 20 Lakh got sold to Royal Challengers Bangalore for a mammoth Rs 5 Crore.
