It is safe to call Robin Uthappa an ‘IPL Great’. The wicketkeeper batsman has been playing the Indian T20 league since its inception in 2008. He has played for as many as six franchises.

However, his most prominent stint has to be with the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) from 2014 to 2019. He was absolutely sensational for them as he went on to win the Orange Cap in 2014. Coincidentally, KKR also happened to win the title in that season.

Post 2019, he represented the Rajasthan Royals (RR) in 2020 and is now with the Chennai Super Kings. He is already 35 and might just announce his retirement. Besides, he’s yet to get a game for the Super Kings and was warming the bench for them in the first phase of IPL 2021.
