The career of Robin Uthappa:
- During these two decades, Uthappa became a World Cup winner in 2007. In fact, it was on this very day in 2007 that Uthappa was involved in one of the most iconic moments of Indian cricket – the famous bowl-out win over Pakistan, where he produced the winning moment and bowed down in a sight for the ages.
- Uthappa continued to feature in domestic competitions and in the Indian Premier League where he represented Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals, and Chennai Super Kings, but it was his time with KKR that remains the most memorable. Uthappa has won two IPL trophies: one for KKR and one for CSK in 2014 and 2021 respectively.
