Rajasthan Royals’ Robin Uthappa has once come under the scanner of fans and critics after he once again failed to perform in the ongoing match between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals.
Before the match kickstarted the toss was won by David Warner, who chose to bowl first. Robin Uthappa and Ben Stokes started the innings slowly, however, before they could accelerate the innings, RR suffered a huge blow as Jason Holder gave the much-needed breakthrough to his team Sunrisers Hyderabad by dismissing Robin Uthappa.
After a series of failures, all eyes were on Robin Uthappa, as he walked out to bat, however, once again he failed to give the best of his abilities and was dismissed in a terrible way. His ‘intent’ is being questioned after he became a victim of Jason Holder’s ‘direct throw’.
Here, watch the video:
Though, he returned back to the pavilion with an embarrassing run-out but during the clash, Robin Uthappa reached two milestones as well. He needed just four runs to complete 450 runs in the IPL and he achieved the same of Jason Holder’s delivery. He even scored 2000 runs as an opener in IPL.
Meanwhile, as soon as Uthappa made his way towards the pavilion, social media was already flooded with reactions from netizens on this. People just can’t stop trolling Uthappa after he was dismissed by an embarrassing run-out. There were many who came up with hilarious memes on the same.
Here, check out the reactions of Twitterati on this:
Robin Uthappa likes to step out, whether he's on striker or non-striker end. Sometimes a bad idea for the latter. #IPL

#RR opening with Robin Uthappa seemed like a Hail Mary, but looking better every game.
From IPL 2019 till before he opened v RCB in #IPL2020 Uthappa averaged 25.20 @ s/r 113.25 – despite opening in about half of those games.
Looks like he's shaken off that extended poor patch.

This is the 14th time Robin Uthappa has been run out in #IPL cricket.
UNESCO may have declared him "Father of Run Out" ?

I have no idea why the fuck Robin Uthappa is even playing this tournament! Look at his body language. He doesn't wanna play.
Why the fuck these so called 'Scouts' even picked him for?

#RR has tinkered their successful opening pair of Smith and Jos to make way for Robin. For some inexplicable reason, not just Smith, but even Jos has moved down the order. Why can't Jos and Smith open, Ben come at 4, Vohra replace Uthappa at 5 #RRvSRH #SRHvsRR #Dream11IPL
