Fans Lash Out At CSK For Trading Robbin Uthappa In IPL2021, Say He Gets Selected As He Ages 35+

The IPL 2021 is going to start from April 11 tentatively and the IPL franchises have already announced the names of the players whom they want to retain and whom they have released. Some big names have been released by the franchises this time; for example – Rajasthan Royals has released their skipper Steve Smith and appointed Sanju Samson as the skipper, Mumbai Indians has released Lasith Malinga and Kings XI Punjab has released Glenn Maxwell, Jimmy Neesham, etc.

The franchises have also started trading players and MS Dhoni led Chennai Super Kings has signed Robin Uthappa who was a part of Rajasthan Royals in the IPL 2020. Robin Uthappa was not able to make any impact in the last season of the IPL but he seemed to have regained his form in the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy in which during a match, he played a brilliant knock of 91 runs for which he played only 54 balls.

CSK has a reputation of having players who are quite aged because of which the team is referred to as Dad’s Army and 35 years old Robin Uthappa certainly fits in this age bracket.

Check out the tweet made by CSK:

The online users have a good time trolling the Chennai franchise for signing Robin Uthappa as they feel that the senior batsman has been signed just because of his age.

CSK has a nightmarish IPL 2020 as it was the first time that the franchise was not able to enter the play-offs and MS Dhoni was also slammed for his poor performance and wrong decisions. The star batsman of CSK, Suresh Raina along with spinner Harbhajan Singh pulled out of the IPL 2020 which further increased the problems of CSK. In this season, while Raina has been retained, the Chennai franchise has released Harbhajan Singh and Shane Watson as well.

Do you think Robin Uthappa will be able to play an important role in changing the fortunes of CSK in the IPL 2021? Let us know your views.
