The Karnataka Premier League (KPL) has been a tournament which has unearthed a lot of unknown talents over the past few years. It is also a league where biggest names from Karnataka namely Karun Nair, Manish Pandey, Robin Uthappa, Vinay Kumar, Mayank Aggarwal and many others showcase their talents.

But in this edition of the league, many prominent stars have missed out of the competition and one man’s absence in the tournament has befuddled many. Former Indian International and mainstay of Kolkata Knight Riders and Karnataka batting, Robin Uthappa missed out of the competition. Uthappa took to Twitter to clarify about the reason for his absence in the present edition of the tournament.

“I’m not playing KPL for basically two reasons. One is Sheetal and I are expecting our first child and we are really excited about it and the Domestic season begins next month so I want to spend as much time as I can with her because I would be leaving soon for the Domestic circuit and I would be only back in time for the birth of the child,” claimed 31 year old.

“Secondly, I want to spend time working on my fitness and health. Like everyone knows its a hectic domestic circuit, we play back to back. I want to make sure I want to go through the whole season staying fit and injury free so that I can build momentum and play really well,” cited out the former Karnataka batsman, looking forward to his future with Saurashtra.

“I want to wish everyone playing in the KPL and KSCA all the very best. Congratulations to KSCA for conducting the tournament so successfully and to unearth so many talents. All the very best to the boys playing in the KPL. Hope to see you soon next year,” concluded Uthappa.
