Robin Uthappa retired from all forms of cricket on Wednesday. On social media, the daring batter confirmed the news. The batter is known for his aggressive style and has represented India in both white-ball formats.
“It has been my greatest honour to represent my country and my state, Karnataka. However, all good things must come to an end, and with a grateful heart, I have decided to retire from all forms of Indian cricket, “he tweeted.
He made his ODI debut against England in Guwahati. He played 46 One-Day Internationals, scoring 934 runs, with the highest score of 86.
Uthappa’s aggressive style also helped him earn a spot in India’s squad for the inaugural edition of the T20 World Cup, which was won by team India. He was one of the Indian bowlers who hit the stumps during the memorable bowl out between India and Pakistan, which ended with both teams tied at 141 after 20 overs.
He represented India in 13 T20Is, and he scored 249 runs at a strike rate of 118.01. He scored 31 in 44 balls in his last ODI, against Zimbabwe in 2015. His last T20 appearance was in the same series. But Uthappa continued to play in the IPL and in domestic competitions. In the IPL, he played for KKR, Rajasthan Royals, and Chennai Super Kings.
The player from Kodagu played 205 IPL matches and scored 4,952 runs at a strike rate of 130.35, including 27 fifties.
