IPL 2019: Robin Uthappa was expected to come good in a match Kolkata Knight Riders had to win. He failed to get going as the top-order batsman did not get his timing right and that did not help KKR. He scored 40 off 47 balls which did not allow KKR to get any momentum to pose a daunting total. KKR could only muster 133/7 in 20 overs at Wankhede Stadium which was well below par. This has not been a season to remember for Uthappa as he was also dropped during the league for his slow batting. It seems he has not learned a lesson after his poor show against Mumbai.
Here are memes that hilariously TROLL Uthappa:
What Uthappa’s slow knock did was build pressure on his non-strikers who felt they were always under pressure to play the big shot. That did not help as Lynn, Karthik lost their wickets in trying to up the ante. A loss would mean KKR get knocked out of IPL 2019. It looks likely as Mumbai are cruising at 64/1 in the ninth over. Earlier, Lasith Malinga snared three wickets as Mumbai Indians restricted Kolkata Knight Riders to 133/7 in a crucial Indian Premier League clash at the Wankhede Stadium.
