Chennai had a poor start to their Indian T20 League campaign this season and needed a quick start in the next match. Robin Uthappa, who opened the innings for Chennai, gave them a perfect start. He looked in a great rhythm as he scored a brisk 50.
The batter scored a half-century in just 25 balls. He gave Chennai a flying start and was dealing in boundaries. He hit eight fours and a six in the innings. The six that he hit was very pleasing as he effortlessly flicked it on the leg side. He got support from Moeen Ali on the other end as he played a few good shots in his innings.
Uthappa's innings helped Chennai score 78 in the powerplay. Shortly after the powerplay, Robin Uthappa was dismissed by Ravi Bishnoi. Shivam Dube and Ambati Rayudu scored some quick runs as Chennai posted 210 on board.
Twitter had some great reactions to the veteran cricketer scoring a fifty. "Robin Uthappa and Dinesh Karthik. The IPL has possibly changed perceptions around them. For people like me, they are still Indian players who never fulfilled their potential. Sad stories," a fan rightly pointed out.
"Robin Uthappa taking us back in time. This is unreal batting," another fan wrote.

What a knock by Robin Uthappa - 50 in just 25 balls. An absolute carnage by Robbie while opening, he's totally grabbed the opportunity he got tonight. pic.twitter.com/VrVTYhCuKh

Robin Uthappa is still good enough and the CSK stint is getting the best out of him. Many people including myself thought it was the end of him post two poor seasons with KKR and RR. #IPL2022
