Chennai Super Kings finally get up on their feet and score one win in their fifth game in the Indian Premier League 2022 on Tuesday, April 12, 2022. After four consecutive losses, the team finally woke up and beat their opponent by 23 runs. The match against Royal Challengers Bangalore ended spectacularly as CSK scored 216 runs in 20 overs.
Shivam Dube became the highlight of the game by scoring a fantastic number of 95 out of 46 balls without dismissal. He contributed to almost a century at the end of the first innings in a match held at Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai. His achievement grants him a well-deserved player-of-the-match award.
"I'm really happy I contributed to my team's first win," Dube said to Star Sports.
"It is really an honour for me to contribute for my team's first win. I think I'm more focused this time [in IPL 2022] and I'm focused on my basics - nothing much. I spoke to many senior players. Mahi [MS Dhoni] bhai also helped me improve my game. He told me to be still and just let the skill work in the game. As the situation demands, as the captain and coach tells me... I'm ready to bat anywhere," Dube ended.
Following Dube as the top scorer for CSK is Robin Uthappa who scored almost half of the total score at 88 runs off 50 balls. The third is Ruturaj Gaikwad who scored far below the top two but nonetheless helpful toward the total score with 17 runs off 16 balls.
