Vijay Hazare – CSK Robin Uthappa: Chennai Super King (CSK) should be very happy seeing Robin Uthappa’s form in Vijay Hazare. CSK had bought Uthappa from Rajasthan Royals during IPL 2021 Trading Window and that is turing out to be one of most smart-buy. Uthappa ended up hitting 87* from 32 balls and ensured Kerala’s entry into Quarter-finals
CSK’s Robin Uthappa in Red Hot form: Uthappa has been in searing form in the Vijay Hazare Trophy, 2021.
- In the ongoing Vijay Hazare Trophy, Uthappa has been on a rampage and has already 2 centuries to his name in the 5 matches he has played so far.
- On Sunday former India player scored 87* from just 32 balls
- He has amassed 375 Runs from 5 matches in Vijay Hazare
- Robin is averaging 93.75 in the tournament
- Most heartening is his strike rate – he has scored his runs at a strike rate of 135
Robin Uthappa’s show on Sunday: In the match against Bihar, chasing a modicum total of 149 runs was never going to be an arduous task but neither anyone would have thought Kerala will surmount it within the first 10 overs of their innings, courtesy to some ballistic hitting by Robin Uthappa scoring 87* from just 32 balls and was well accompanied by the Delhi Capitals batsman, Vishnu Vinod. Earlier it was the efforts of Sreesanth, which pushed the Bihar batsmen against the wall who took 4 wickets and destroyed the batting line-up of Bihar.
CSK congratulates Uthappa: CSK, who had a dismal season in 2020 IPL, will hope that Uthappa with the kind of form he is in, will dig-out the yellow army from the trench they had found themselves in last year. CSK who traded the services of Uthappa from Rajasthan Royals for the 2021 season before the auctions, will be exhilarated after watching the veteran batsman amongst runs going into the 14th edition of IPL and will be hoping that he carries this form into the IPL as well.
