India has dominated the ongoing IND vs AFG series. They have displayed two brilliant performances and have taken an unassailable lead of 2-0 in the series. In both the games they were on top with bat and ball and it’s fair to say that they ticked almost every box right. 

IND vs AFG: Shivam Dube equals Virat Kohli in incredible bowling feat

One of the biggest positives for India in the IND vs AFG series has been the Shivam Dube. The all-rounder has been the main reason behind the Rohit Sharma-led side winning the two-match series with one match to go. 

Shivam Dube has been a revelation for the Indian team in the ongoing IND vs AFG series. Batting at No.4, he has changed the game within a span of a few balls for the team with his magnificent batting and has made a mockery of the Afghanistan bowlers. 

Shivam Dube started the series with a brutal half-century and took India home. If this was not enough, he smashed another half-century in the second match and helped his team win the game as well as the IND vs AFG series in the second match itself. 

What has been the main highlight of his batting has been, the way he has taken spinners to cleaners. Afghanistan’s strength lies in their spinners and Shivam Dube has attacked their strength, which has put the team on the front foot.

However, not only with the bat but Shivam Dube also chipped in with the ball as well. The all-rounder has bowled great lines and lengths and has picked wickets in both games. His all-round heroics have put the team on the front foot in both occasions. 

Shivam Dube with his heroics with bat and ball equalled Virat Kohli in an incredible feat. He joined the list of Indian players who have taken wickets and smashed fifty in the T20I format. The all-rounder equalled Kohli, who has achieved the feat two times in his career. 

Yuvraj Singh is at the No.1 spot, and has achieved the feat three times in his career. 

Most times taking a wicket and scoring a fifty for India in T20is:

Yuvraj Singh – 3.
Virat Kohli – 2.
Shivam Dube – 2
