However, that was not the end for Shivam Dube who played brilliantly in the four-day games for India A in the West Indies and became the player of the series. He hit a blitzy century against Karnataka in the recently-concluded Vijay Hazare Trophy.
All these performances give him the much-needed recognition and earned him the maiden callup in the national team for the upcoming Bangladesh series.
