Former India and Karnataka batter Robin Uthappa, who was part of the Indian team that won the 2007 T20 World Cup, has announced his retirement from all forms of Indian cricket. He made the announcement on his Twitter handle. “It has been my greatest honor to represent my country and my state, Karnataka. However, all good things must come to an end, and it is with a grateful heart that I have decided to withdraw from all forms of Indian cricket. Thank you all, ‘ tweeted Uthappa.

He was part of the Chennai Super Kings franchise that won the 2021 IPL title and was also an integral part of the Kolkata Knight Riders team that had won the title in 2012 and 2014 under the captaincy of Gautam Gambhir.

Uthappa scored 934 runs in 46 ODIs for India and also scored 249 runs in 13 T20Is.


One of his most telling contributions to international cricket was a 50-run knockout in the group match against Pakistan in the 2007 T20 World Cup. He returned to hit the stumps in a… “come out”after the match ended in a draw. His celebration of taking off his cap and bowing is etched in the memory of Indian cricket fans.

As of now, he is the 9th highest finisher in Indian Premier League history, with 4952 runs in 205 games with 27 fifties under his belt.
