Apart from being a key member of India's 2007 ICC World T20 winning squad, Uthappa has been sensational in the IPL since its inception. A prolific run-scorer, the 34-year-old wicket-keeper batsman, who has played for four different IPL franchises so far, represented RCB during the 2009 and 2010 seasons.

However, he produced his best-ever IPL performance during the Kolkata Knight Riders' phenomenal IPL 2014 campaign wherein the Gautam Gambhir-led unit won their second title. In what was his first season at KKR, Uthappa emerged as the highest run-getter of season seven, having amassed 660 runs. His continued his good run for the Kolkata franchise scoring 350+ runs in the successive editions- a feat he, unfortunately, couldn't replicate last season (282 runs) which eventually led to his release.

Given his stylish batting and familiarity with the conditions at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, the RCB management would love to bring Uthappa, who has 4411 IPL runs to his name, back to Bengaluru after exactly a decade since he left.
