Robin Uthappa’s performance in key match against Mumbai Indians yesterday has got KKR fans livid. The top run scorer in yesterdays match had 24 dot balls against his name as he managed to scrape 47 runs.
Apparently, angry KKR fans have hired the man who slapped Kejriwal to use his skills on Uthappa too.
A few days back, a disgruntled AAP supporter slapped Kejriwal while on a road show. The tight slap immediately went viral on social media and many curious over the identity of the attacker.
KKR fans squarely blamed Uthappa for not making it to the playoffs and were of the opinion that a tight slap is what he deserved.
“Franchise owners spend so much money on these players. Fans book overpriced tickets to watch these star players. And what do we get in return. 24 dot balls and a spineless display in a crucial match. I would have slapped him myself. But after watching Kejriwal being slapped, I would rather have a specialist do the needful,” said a KKR fan.
“There Katappa killed Bahubali and here Utappa killed all our hopes,” said angry KKR supporter.
Some fans however had a different opinion and said that one player cannot be blamed for the team’s performance. “Slapping is not the solution. No point making Uthappa the fall guy. I am in favor of having Uthappa on Karan Johar’s show. Look how Koffee with Karan transformed both KL Rahul and Hardik Pandya,” remarked another fan.
KKR loss took a political turn after a TMC spokesperson blamed Uthappa to be a BJP supporter, only to retract his statement later.
Meanwhile, Robin Uthappa’s security has been beefed up and the slap happy AAP supporter has been warned against any misadventure by security officials.
BCCI too has asked KKR fans not to overreact as it is job of players like Imran Tahir and Virat Kohli.
