The 2024 T20 World Cup has been filled with thrilling moments, and the match between India and USA in New York’s (Big Apple) was no exception. In the first innings, Indian all-rounder Shivam Dube’s bowling came under the spotlight, and unfortunately, it didn’t quite live up to expectations. The usually reliable bowler was introduced to the attack in the 8th over, but his very first delivery was met with severe punishment from USA batsman.

USA batter Steven Taylor, known for his powerful strokes, took Dube’s hard-length delivery flat over the mid-wicket fence, striking a security personnel on the chest. The six was a stunning display of power, sending shockwaves through the Indian camp. The individual, fortunately, appeared to be fine, but it was clear he hadn’t seen the ball coming.

The incident was a much-needed boost for the USA team, who were struggling against India’s disciplined bowling attack. The US team has given India a target of 111 runs, which will be a challenging task for the Indian batsmen. Currently, India is batting on 10/2 after 2.2 overs, and they will need to regroup quickly to stay in the game.

This unexpected six has put Shivam Dube’s utility as a bowler under scrutiny. His performance in the match has raised questions about his role in the Indian team. Despite being a skilled batsman, Dube’s lack of consistency with the ball has been a concern for the team.


The USA team, on the other hand, will be looking to capitalize on their good work with the ball. Their bowlers have done an excellent job in restricting India’s run flow, and they will be hoping to keep their opponents under pressure. The match is still alive, and both teams will be looking to give their best to emerge victorious.

Shivam Dube’s bowling woes have added an exciting twist to the match. The Indian team will need to regroup quickly to stay in the game, while the USA team will be looking to make the most of their good work with the ball. The match is shaping up to be an exciting one, and fans are eagerly waiting to see what unfolds next.
