Shivam Dube has been named Player of the Match for his unbeaten 95 off 46 balls. "We were looking for the first win and I am really happy that I contributed for the team.
It's a honour for me. I am more focused this time and focusing on basics. I spoke to many seniors - Mahi bhai also helped me to improve the game," Shivam Dube was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
"He said, 'Just be focused, just be still, just let the skill work in the game.' I wanted to time the ball really well. I tried to maintain my balance. Yuvi pa is always a role model for a left-hander.
Many people told me that I bat like him. As the situation demands, as the captain and coach tell me, I am ready to bat anywhere," he added.
Besides, during CSK's inning, the debutant youngster Suyash Prabhudessai made a stunning effort on the field, as he collected the ball by diving to his right and threw the ball immediately to the wicket-keeper to dismiss the dangerous Moeen Ali.
