Robin Uthappa is in the form of his life this Indian Premier League as his numbers are doing the talking. But has that fact gotten into his head? Probably yes.
In Sunday’s clash between Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad, Uthappa intentionally clashed with Sunrisers Hyderabad’s Siddarth Kaul, leaving the medium pace bowler flummoxed.
This happened during KKR’s innings as they were chasing a mammoth 210-run target set by the Hyderabad side.
While running down to the non-striker’s end after smashing Kaul for a boundary, Uthappa deliberately jostled him with his shoulder. The incident happened during the third over of the KKR innings.
Although this behaviour wasn’t expected of Uthappa, it is natural for anyone to lose it when you’re staring down the barrel in a crunch game.
