After spending two seasons at Royal Challengers Bangalore, Indian all-rounder Shivam Dube has shifted to the inaugural IPL champions – the Rajasthan Royals.
Dube, a 27-year-old all-rounder, was bought by Royals for Rs. 4.4 Crore at the last IPL players auction. The Mumbai born cricketer is gearing up for the new challenge and looking forward to learning from the likes of Kumar Sangakkara, who has been appointed as the Royals’ Director of Cricket, and star all-rounder Ben Stokes.It feels really good to be part of the Rajasthan Royals. I am really excited to play alongside Sanju Samson. He is one of my very good friends in the Indian cricket team. I know him really well. Our side looks strong and I am sure we will lift the trophy this time,” Dube told Timesofindia.com in an exclusive interview.
“I learnt a lot at RCB. The experience was huge. Virat has a lot of experience. He is one of the best cricketers in the world. He is currently at the highest level of cricket. I have learnt a lot from him,” Dube, who played two seasons of the IPL for RCB further said.
