Dube scored a counter-attacking hundred off just 110 balls, coming in to bat with his team struggling (59-4).
Shivam Dube earned himself a Man of the Series award just a couple of weeks ago. The tall and powerful left-hander had scored two fifties in the series and struck at nearly 160 to put himself in the reckoning for the T20 World Cup 2024.
With the Ranji Trophy 2024 going on, several players have been giving their auditions to make the Test side. After another southpaw, Nitish Rana, scored a ton yesterday, Shivam Dube has also thrown his name into the hat.
Consistent with the current time, Dube scored a quick-fire hundred in just 110 balls. With his side starting the inning trailing by 126, Dube walked in when they were 59-4 and still behind 67 runs.
His 117-run knock helped Mumbai go well past the trail and lead by 123 by the time he departed.
With Indian top and middle-order batters like Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer failing, Shivam Dube has done his bit. By taking his team out of danger and giving them a fighting chance, the southpaw has created a chance to play for the national side.
