Indian Premier League (IPL) has been always known for its massive sixes in the tournament and the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) all-rounder, Shivam Dube added one more to the count against Lucknow Super Giants. Dube slogged a delivery by Dushmantha Chameera to clear the ropes at deep square-leg and hit a massive six which nearly went outside the Brabourne Stadium.
Chennai Super Kings are locking horns with Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) and it has been a game of batsmen so far. Batting first, CSK has produced a run-fest so far maintaining a run rate of almost 10. Except for Ruturaj Gaikwad, everyone has contributed in double digits and the team is eyeing a total of 210 runs. However, in this run-fest Shivam Dube played a key role, almost scoring a fiery half-century.
Dushmantha Chameera was bowling the 18th over of the innings. He bowled an off-cutter to Shivam Dube on the penultimate delivery. The southpaw balls read the pace variation correctly and slogged the ball for a massive six over a deep square leg. It was a humongous six and almost cleared the stands.
Here is the video of the massive six from Shivam Dube:
Lucknow Super Giants (Playing XI): KL Rahul (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Evin Lewis, Manish Pandey, Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, Krunal Pandya, Dushmantha Chameera, Andrew Tye, Ravi Bishnoi, Avesh Khan
Chennai Super Kings (Playing XI): Ruturaj Gaikwad, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (wk), Ravindra Jadeja (c), Shivam Dube, Dwayne Bravo, Dwaine Pretorius, Mukesh Choudhary, Tushar Deshpande
Here is how the fans reacted to the huge six of Shivam Dube:
I always genuinely believed that Shivam Dube has a potential to do well in T20. He knows how to hit sixes and always play with intent.

Shivam Dube while batting forgets to use his feet. His legs are cemented to the crease..India Cements on Shivam Dube's back makes perfect sense.#CSKvsLSG
