Will he win a third IPL this year?

Robin Uthappa began his journey in the IPL with the Mumbai Indians, but the real catapult in his career came when he joined the Royal Challengers Bangalore the following year.

Although he didn't win the IPL in the two years that he was there, he provided the side with the destructive element that they needed in their batting.

In 2011, he moved to the Pune Warriors India and although the team had a poor run, he did well for himself, scoring 1103 runs in 46 matches. In 2014, he joined he joined the Kolkata Knight Riders and ever since then, has looked a different player altogether.

In the three completed seasons so far, the right-hander has amassed a minimum of 200 runs each year and even won the Orange Cap in 2014, when he made 660 runs that also earned him a comeback in the Indian setup.

During his time at the Knight Riders, Uthappa has won one title and will look to add a third this year.

Pune Warriors India(2011-2013): 46 matches, 1103 runs
Kolkata Knight Riders(2014-Present): 60 matches, 2012 runs
