Robin Uthappa wasn’t held by Chennai Super Kings after the finish of IPL 2021 as the establishment picked to keep Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni, Moeen Ali and Ruturaj Gaikwad. Despite the fact that he wasn’t held, Uthappa rejoined the establishment as he was purchased at his base cost of Rs 2 crore in the uber closeout in front of IPL 2022. Addressing Ravichandran Ashwin on his YouTube channel, the wicketkeeper-player shed light on the main discussion he had with Dhoni when he joined CSK from Rajasthan Royals in 2021. He expressed that the previous India skipper let him know that he would be able to play for the group yet would have to buckle down for it.
“Whenever I came here, that was imparted to me – ‘Whenever you get an open door, you will get 4 or 5 games without a doubt. Yet, you need to hang tight for your chance.’ For me clearness and correspondence are vital. So as far as I might be concerned, one of thing that I preferred about that first discussion with MS was that he told me, ‘At this point, you don’t stroll into my playing XI. We are two months from IPL. We will see where it goes in the following a few months. Since I am not mulling over everything now’,” he said.
“Then, at that point, when I came here, they told me, ‘Tune in, you are in the best 12 or 13. Yet, you probably won’t get the primary game. You could need to hang tight for your turn.’ I said, ‘All good, that correspondence is there'”, he added.
In the continuous season, Uthappa has enlisted 106 runs from four games for CSK and in IPL 2021, he scored 115 runs in four apparatuses. In spite of highlighting in just four games, Uthappa assumed an unmistakable part for CSK in the last versus KKR. In their forthcoming match, CSK face Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Tuesday.
