Why is Shivam Dube not playing CSK vs GT IPL 2023 match?

The important news update coming from the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) camp is that they have not included big-hitting batsman Shivam Dube in their starting XI for this all-important Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) final against the Gujarat Titans (GT) taking place at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The Chennai Super Kings will definitely be feeling very much confident as they are playing their record 10th IPL final especially after beating Gujarat Titans by 15 runs in the Qualifier 1. CSK also ended the IPL 2023 league stage at the second spot on the points table.

CSK vs GT: Why is Shivam Dube Not Playing Today’s IPL 2023 Match?

During the toss, it was revealed that Shivam Dube is not part of the starting CSK playing XI for today’s CSK vs GT match. However, he is absolutely fit and included in the substitute members list out of which one can be used as an Impact Player at any moment in the match. Incidentally, Dube has been in an amazing form throughout this IPL 2023 season having smashed a total of 386 runs from 15 matches at an incredible strike-rate of nearly 160 that includes as many as 3 fifties. Moreover, the left-hander has hit a total of 33 sixes in the ongoing tournament so far and therefore, he will definitely come out as an Impact Player in the second innings for CSK.

“We’ll bowl first with the rain forecast being around. Yesterday we were in the dressing room. As a cricketer you always want to play. It was the crowd that suffered the most. Hopefully we can entertain them. Pitch has been under cover for a long time, but throughout the tournament the pitch has behaved well over here. Quite happy it will be a 20-over game we’ll be playing. Serves justice to the tournament like this. Same team,” said Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni during the toss.
