3 players Mumbai Indians should target in the IPL trade
#2 Shivam Dube (from Royal Challengers Bangalore)
Shivam Dube came into the limelight owing to his big-hitting abilities. The Mumbai all-rounder hit the experienced Praveen Tambe for 5 consecutive sixes in a local T20 tournament in Mumbai.
He repeated the feat against Baroda's Swapnil Singh in a Ranji Trophy game just a day before of the IPL auction. Dube was purchased at a jaw-dropping amount of ₹5 crores by Royal Challengers Bangalore at the auction.
Big things were expected from the youngster but he failed to impress for RCB. In the 4 games he played, Dube scored a paltry total of 40 runs. He went wicketless with the ball. However, Dube did not lose hope and has worked on his game and is currently doing well for India A.
Mumbai Indians had bid heavily for Dube at last year's auction too and in case RCB decide to give him away, Mumbai might be interested in roping in the local lad for IPL 2020.
