Shivam has had a rollicking start to his first-class career. In the first-class career, which is only three matches old, he has a couple of five-wicket-hauls and a couple of tons under his belt. It includes a seven-wicket-haul against Karnataka and a ton against Gujarat when his side was in a precarious position.
Shivam is a powerful young lad, he packs a punch and is more than capable of hitting the ball a country mile. And considering his all-round abilities and power game, he should be one of the hottest players in the upcoming IPL auction. He surely will be a valuable addition to any IPL team. But he still has to work a lot on his bowling as his average speed is around 125 which is isn’t good enough these days to survive at the top-notch level.
