Robin Uthappa's presence in the KKR line-up was a massive boost for the two-time champions.

A talented stroke-maker at the top of the batting order, Robin Uthappa's flair and understanding of the game in addition to his wicket-keeping skills made him a huge asset to any IPL team he represented in the past seasons.

Uthappa started his IPL career with the Mumbai Indians in 2008 before he shifted franchises to his home side, the Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2009. After moderate outings with RCB, Uthappa was roped in by the Pune Warriors in 2011 for whom he played three seasons and made 1103 runs in 46 matches.

In 2014, Uthappa moved to the Kolkata Knight Riders and gave rise to a formidable partnership with skipper Gautam Gambhir at the top of the order. In the same season, Uthappa finished with the Orange Cap with 660 runs from 15 games and continued to play fo them in the next two seasons.

Apart from his prowess with the bat, Uthappa also has 90 dismissals from behind the stumps including 58 catches and 32 stumpings - most of them while representing the Knight Riders.
