Indian all-rounder Shivam Dube is currently at the receiving end of criticism and trolling after his forgettable outing in the fifth and final T20I between Indian and New Zealand at the Bay Oval. On an otherwise fine day for Team India, Shivam Dube had a miserable outing.
Shivam Dube, first, disappointed his fans with his performance with the bat and then later he turned out to be the most expensive player for the Indian side as he went on to concede 34 runs in one over. Ross Taylor and Tim Seifert smashed Shivam Dube all around the ground.
The sequence of fours and sixes smashed by the Australian duo was 6, 6, 4, 1, 4nb, 6, 6. Shivam Dube conceding 34 runs is the second most expensive over in the History of T20I cricket.
The memories of the 2007 T20 World Cup must have come rushing back to Stuart Broad after Shivam Dube conceded 34 runs in an over. Well, if you don’t remember, then we should remind you that Stuart Broad delivered the most expensive over in the History of T20I cricket during India vs New Zealand’s match in 2007 T20 World Cup and he became the victim of the ‘famous 6 sixes off 6 balls’ knock of Yuvraj Singh.
Yes, Stuart Broad holds the record of delivering the most expensive over in the History of T20I cricket for conceding 36 runs to Yuvraj Singh.
From cricket fans to cricket experts, everyone was talking about the expensive over delivered by Shivam Dube. Netizens were trolling him left, right and center for his poor performance in the game.
ICC via their official Instagram account also took to their social media and shared a picture of Shivam Dube from the match and wrote:
“6, 6, 4, 1, 4nb, 6, 6 = 34 runs. Shivam Dube bowled the second-most expensive over in T20I history today! Do you remember the first?”

While the fans flooded the post with their amazing reactions on the picture, it was the reaction of Shreyas Iyer which won the internet.
The England legend, who was smashed for six sixes in an over by batting king Yuvraj Singh, trolled himself and wrote “nope”.
