“His strength is his balance. He stands tall and hits the ball straight. He’s a better striker of the ball and a more consistent striker of the ball (this season). That’s the secret of him picking up the balance. The moment you try and move your foot a little too far across, you’ll lose your balance and shape. 

“And most importantly, he’s getting the responsibility of batting higher up the order which means he’s getting more overs to bat. Earlier, he used to bat down the order for his previous franchises, he could only play five-six overs, you can’t score too many runs when you get to play only five-six overs.” Gavaskar said on Cricket Live on Star Sports.

Former England cricketer Graeme Swann was also impressed with all-rounder Shivam Dube’s performance and he said that the CSK all-rounder has taken the role of senior in the team and has batted very well.

“Despite being a junior player, Shivam Dube took up the senior’s role and batted responsibly. One of the straight sixes he hit in the game against RCB (where he smashed 95*), that was one of the easiest sixes I have seen in cricket. 102 meters over the sightscreens, it was ridiculous,”Swann said.
