Robin Uthappa: The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League is going on in full swing. While the tournament has just started but we have already witnessed some of the brilliant moments from the ongoing league. Each team has played three games in the ongoing season.
This time the IPL is filled with a lot of twists and turns, while we have seen many youngsters including the likes of Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan, Prithvi Shaw, Devdutt Padikkal, and many more taking the game by storm and on the other hand, many experienced cricketers struggling on-field including Robin Uthappa, MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli among others.
Meanwhile, talking about Robin Uthappa, the Karnataka-born batsman, who has played for 5 different franchises during his IPL career is playing for Rajasthan Royals in the ongoing 13th edition of the Indian Premier League. He has recently achieved an unwanted record in IPL.
Well, we should tell you that there is one unique ‘unwanted’ record that Robin Uthappa will have to live with, though not forever, as there are chances that RCB skipper Virat Kohli might re-claim it or join Uthappa in the upcoming match of RCB on Saturday.
But what’s that unwanted record?
Well, the unwanted record that we are talking about here is for the player, who lost the most number of IPL matches. Yes, you read that right. Until Wednesday, RCB’s skipper Virat Kohli was at the top of this list, with 90 defeats in his account.
However, now after Rajasthan Royals‘ first defeat, Robin Uthappa is sitting at the top of the list. But the tournament has just started and the record might change soon.
The list also includes the names of the skippers of KKR and MI, Dinesh Karthik, and Mumbai Indians at 3rd and the 4th spot in the list with 87 and 85 losses, respectively. Amit Mishra and AB de Villiers are in the 5th position with 57 defeats.
