IPL 2019: Robin Uthappa came into bat with KKR needing more than 11 runs per over. Uthappa was expected to get going from the first ball but he ended up scoring a slow nine runs off 20 balls. It did not go down well with the fans who came down hard at the batsman. Uthappa went for a pull and mistimed it horribly. Negi at deep square leg takes a comfortable catch. Chasing 214 to win, KKR lost both their openers cheaply and a lot was expected of Rana and Robin, but the latter failed.
Here is how Robin got mocked:
Earlier, Virat Kohli notched up his fifth century in the Indian Premier League while Moeen Ali too struck a belligerent fifty to help Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) post a mammoth 213/4 in 20 overs against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens here on Friday.
Put into bat first in a must-win tie, Kohli took 58 balls to bring up his first ton of the season with the help of nine fours and four sixes.
Moeen Ali, meanwhile, bludgeoned a 28-ball 66 (4×5, 6×6), as the pair added 90 runs for the third wicket off just 43 balls.
After Ali’s dismissal, Kohli joined hands with Marcus Stoinis (17* off 8) for a 64-run fourth wicket partnership as the visitors amassed 143 runs in the last 10 overs to flatten the home team.
Kohli got to his 50 off 40 deliveries but stepped on the accelerator to score his next 50 in just 17 deliveries before getting out to Harry Gurney off the final ball of the innings.
