Kevin Pietersen is very impressed with this CSK star: The 2023 edition of the Indian Premier League has once again brought young talents into the limelight for their amazing performances. Several young performers have demonstrated their skills to make an immediate impact on their side.
Meanwhile, former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen has spotted two of them in the first half of the ongoing season of the league and has even gone on to compare one of the talented cricketers to the legendary Yuvraj Singh in a mind-boggling remark.
Kevin Pietersen Compared CSK Star To Yuvraj Singh
KP heaped praise on IPL 2023 for letting the homegrown talents flourish so far. Pietersen compared the Chennai Super Kings’ newest star, Shivam Dube to the batting legend Yuvraj Singh. Just like the former Indian all-rounder, Shivam too is left-handed and is a medium pacer as well although MS Dhoni is yet to make use of his bowling services.
Pietersen’s remark came after Dube’s stunning run in the first half of the ongoing tournament. So far, in the ongoing tournament, Dube has amassed 236 runs in seven innings at a strike rate of 157.33 with three half-centuries. He has been single-handedly leading the charge of Chennai Super Kings in the middle overs as the team stands 3rd in the points table after 9 games.
In his column for Betway, KP wrote: “Some of the homegrown talent going more under the radar is frightening, too. There’s a lot of Yuvraj Singh about CSK’s Shivam Dube. He’s a proper, proper player,”
Shivam Dube with the bat in IPL 2023:
– 19 runs off 18 balls vs GT
– 27 runs off 16 balls vs LSG
