    Shivam Dube RR vs CSK IPL 2022: In a big news update, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) swashbuckling batsman Shivam Dube is not playing the today Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) match against Rajasthan Royals (RR) at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. This is the last match of IPL 2022 season for the Chennai Super Kings and this has not been one of their best campaigns. CSK have witnessed a total of 9 defeats and 4 victories in the ongoing edition of the T20 tournament.

    RR vs CSK IPL 2022: Why is Shivam Dube Not Playing Today?

    After winning the toss and opting to bat first, Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni revealed that Shivam Dube misses out on selection for the today IPL match against Rajasthan Royals. It seems to be just a pure tactical change as Dube has performed really well this IPL season with the bat. The left-handed batsman has notched up close to 300 runs from 11 games at a wonderful strike-rate of more than 150.

    “We’ll bat first. You want to give batters enough time, given our combination. Just want them to express themselves. Only one change – Rayudu in for Shivam. He is someone who bowls at decent pace and gets good bounce but the important thing is to give them the time to develop. Want to groom players but also give them enough opportunity to develop. Just for the sake of giving time to players, we aren’t playing a lopsided team, so it’s a bit of both. (Whether he’ll play next year) Definitely, because it will be unfair to not to say thank you to Chennai. Won’t be nice to do that to CSK fans,” said Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni during the toss.
