Soon after his T20 Debut, the young rising star played his first List A. since then. He has had the attention of the fans and other bowlers in the games. During his Ranji debut, Dube made his dream come true when he made 5 wicket haul. His stay with the Mumbai Indian team has been an amazing one, and during the Ranji 2018 trophy, he made history for himself by scoring 5 sixes.
Teams were fighting for him, and Bangalore managed to sign him up, and in 2019, he played the Indian T20 for them. In 2019, he got recognized nationally and finally made his first appearance to play the T20Is against Bangladesh.
However, in 2020 during India’s tour of New Zealand, Shivam Dube did not do well as he only scored 34 runs in an over.
