IPL 2019: Robin Uthappa once again failed with the bat in this season of the IPL. Uthappa walked into the middle after KKR lost Shubman Gill early for nine off 16 balls. Robin was expected to come in and get going but he failed as he failed to get his timing right. Leave alone boundaries, the fact that was more frustrating was that he could not even rotate the strike which meant the pressure was building at the other end. Probably, his slow batting forced Lynn to go for the big shot and he failed. This lackluster attitude of the KKR batsman did not go down well with the fans who started slamming the cricketer.
The trolling was brutal as expected, here is how Twitter reacted:
One can also question the intent as he did not even look to score quickly. This is just not expected in a must-win game. Hence, the bashing was on the cards. One also has to blame the team management for trusting Uthappa at No 3. To make matters worse he also played out a maiden off Mitchell McClenaghan of the 11th over.
At the time of filing the copy, KKR was reeling at 73/4 in 13 overs. Russell was dismissed for a golden duck.
