Robin Uthappa announces retirement from all forms of Indian cricket

Indian batter Robin Uthappa announced his retirement from all forms of Indian cricket on Wednesday.

The batter, who last represented Team India in 2015, took to social media to make the announcement through a letter. Uthappa shared a heartfelt post announcing his retirement from all forms of cricket on Koo App.

The right-handed batter said it has been the “greatest honour” to represent India and Karnataka during this illustrious career.

“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. Thank you all,” Uthappa said on the Koo app.

“It has been 20 years since I started playing professional cricket, and it has been the greatest honour to represent my country and state, Karnataka- wonderful journey of ups and downs; one that has been fulfilling, rewarding, enjoyable and has allowed me to grow as a human being,” Uthappa added.

Uthappa represented India on the Under-19 World Cup team in 2004.

In April 2006, Uthappa played his first ODI for Team India against England. Since then, he has participated in 46 One Day Internationals for India, appearing in 42 innings and scoring 934 runs at an average of 25.94. From his bat, six half-centuries have been produced.

He has also participated in 13 T20 International matches for India, accumulating 249 runs at a 24.90 average. He has a total of 50 points in the format, with 50 being his best score.

The excellent batsman was a member of the Indian team that won the first ICC T20 World Cup in South Africa in 2007. The Karnataka-born player won two IPL titles, for the Chennai Super Kings in 2021 and the Kolkata Knight Riders in 2014, respectively.
