IPL 2021: Robin Uthappa gives emotional message to all CSK fans also said this big thing for Dhoni
Chennai Super Kings batsman Robin Uthappa thanked the fans of the team. Robin made a big statement about the support shown by fans over the past few weeks. He said that he is very keen to play with MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Ambati Rayudu. Robin Uthappa has joined the Chennai team for IPL 2021.
He first appeared in Yellow Jersey. He shared a special video on his Instagram account and said that he is very keen to play for Chennai and wants to win the IPL Trophy to the team this year. Chennai Superkings will be Uthappa’s sixth IPL team. He has previously played for Rajasthan Royals, Kolkata Knight Riders, Pune Warriors, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians. Uthappa has also achieved the Orange Cap by scoring the highest number of runs twice in a season of IPL.
Form was poor in IPL 2020
IPL 2020 was nothing special for Robin Uthappa. However, one of the reasons for this is that Rajasthan gave him the opportunity to bat in the middle order while he is the top order batsman. Uthappa’s bat scored just 196 runs in 12 matches of IPL 2020, with his highest score being 41 runs.
Uthappa is playing in this league from the first season
Uthappa is playing in this league from the first season. He has 4607 runs in 189 matches of this league at a strike rate of 129.99. During this time, he has scored 24 half-centuries. When Kolkata Knight Riders won their second title in IPL 2014, Uthappa played a key role in that victory by scoring 660 runs.
