Kolkata Knight Riders’ (KKR) in-form batsman Robin Uthappa lost his cool during his side’s Indian Premier League match on Sunday against defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). The right-hander was involved in an incident with SRH pacer Siddarth Kaul in the third of the KKR innings.
Chasing 210 for a win, KKR lost their openers early. All eyes were on Uthappa, who has been in the form of his life of late.
In the third over of the match, Robin got off the mark with a boundary of Kaul’s bowling. However as their paths crossed, Uthappa shouldered Kaul in a bid to unnerve him. Kaul, who had bowled a tidy over, was taken aback with the 31-year-old’s attitude.
Veteran Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh, however, was unhappy with Uthappa’s conduct. Even the umpire had a word with Uthappa.
When the match was interrupted by rain, Yuvi went up to Uthappa and had a chat with him. Later, Yuvi put his hand around the KKR batsman’s neck and dished out a piece of advice.
Uthappa, who has played with Yuvraj for India, was receptive and acknowledged his senior’s words
