Uthappa exits Karnataka, Kerala ready to welcome him

Uthappa exits Karnataka, Kerala ready to welcome him”

Robin Uthappa is all set to play for Kerala in the upcoming domestic season as he obtained a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Karnataka State Cricket Association (KSCA).

Robin Uthappa has ended his 15- year association with Karnataka cricket after the state body KSCA granted him a NOC to play elsewhere. Uthappa, now on a vacation overseas, has represented Karnataka for more than 15 seasons and added experience and star-status by virtue of his presence.

"I had a long chat with Robin and he had his reasons for moving out", said Rao. He was pretty keen to leave so we sent him the NOC last week.

"He has exited from Karnataka and we have also written to him with our offer to accept him". He played for Karnataka from U-14 to the highest level.

Uthappa was dropped from Karnataka squad for the latest Ranji Trophy season after being ignored for a league game against Maharashtra in Mohali. He was very little used by Karnataka in the previous Ranji Trophy season (2016-17).

But with the rise of young players like Karun Nair and KL Rahul Uthappa's prominence in the team has been on the wane.

Hailing from Kodagu, Uthappa knows a fair bit of Malayalam and his acquaintance with the local language is something that has played a part in KCA seeking Uthappa as one of their outstation cricketers along with Jalaj Saxena who has been retained from the previous campaign.

Kerala have roped in 1996-World Cup winning coach Dav Whatmore to help the team climb up the ladders of success in the domestic season. He said that he would talk about it when the time comes.
