Robin Uthappa, who has been one of the best performers for Kerala in the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy, wants to open the batting for Chennai Super Kings in the upcoming 14th edition of the Indian Premier League.Robin Uthappa was bought by the Rajasthan Royals for Rs 3 crore. It was the first trade done by CSK management in IPL History.
Robin Uthappa played an important role when KKR won the IPL Trophy with his batting he grabbed orange cap in 2014. Also , there is a news that South Africa captain Faf du plesis might be unavailable for the first 10 days due to the Pakistan series and other covid restrictions.So keeping the unavailability of FAF, Dhoni will prefer an experienced player at the Top. Top order failure was one of the major reasons for IPL 2020 failure for CSK.
Robin Uthappa scored377 runs with an average of 75 in vijay hazare trophy.He played around’ 189 matches in IPL with 4607 runs , he had some immense experience and one of the leading run scorer for IPL .MsDhoni always believe in the experience of the players .Lets hope Robbie will bring cheers to CSK Fans.
However, he failed to perform in the last edition in UAE . Uthappa finished the tournament with just 196 runs from 12 games at an average of 16.33.Uthappa is looking to prove himself in the IPL 14 under MS Dhoni Captaincy .
MS Dhoni always know the strong zone of every player so there are some high chances that Uthappa might be open with either Ruthuraj or Jagadeesan for CSK in IPL 2020.He is a good player of fast bowling . For CSK, first five matches will be played at Mumbai which is good batting track which will be more suited to the players like Robin Uthappa.
During his recent interview with Times of India, Uthappa said that he could have performed well in the last two IPL seasons if he was allowed to bat up the order.
“I would like to play as an opener. It is where I naturally thrive. Getting the team off to a good start and winning matches for the team is what I am most comfortable doing,” Uthappa to TOI.
