Robin Uthappa in action during the SRH vs KKR clash BCCI

During the Match No. 37 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 between Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Siddharth Kaul and Robin Uthappa had a small altercation. Sunrisers Hyderabad smacked Kolkata Knight Riders by a huge margin of 48 runs in a rain-affected game, but the match was not truncated as a result. SRH found it easier to stop the KKR juggernaut after David Warner hammered a brutal century, notching up the highest score by a captain 126 off a mere 59 balls in the history of IPL. For KKR, Uthappa once again shone as he scored a quickfire half-century. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: SRH vs KKR, Match 37

Uthappa, who once again found himself in thick of things for KKR as the team had lost Sunil Narine and Gautam Gambhir early for cheap, started off with a boundary. After hitting the ball past the fielder at mid-on off the final delivery of the third over from Kaul, the KKR batsman came down towards the non-striker s to complete the run. However, as he was walking back, Uthappa barged his shoulder into that of the bowler, who was left perplexed over the action from the batsman. Kaul looked in disbelief and even exchanged a few words with the batsman. Umpire S Ravi intervened and the matter seemed to have resolved.

However, Yuvraj Singh, Kaul s teammate at SRH and Punjab, then intervened and was seen giving some advice to Uthappa. Later when the rain interrupted play, Uthappa and Yuvraj were involved in a friendly chat as they walked towards the dressing room. It looked like Yuvraj, who was unhappy with Uthappa s behaviour towards Kaul, was advising Uthappa not to indulge in such behaviour with youngsters. From the looks of it, the KKR batsman smiled and seemingly admitted his mistake, bringing an end to the matter. Watch what happened here:

Sunrisers Hyderabad registered a thumping win as they restricted KKR to a mere 161 for 8 after posting a huge target of 210 runs. Batting first, SRH were bolstered by a century from Warner, who clobbered 8 sixes and 10 boundaries to score 126 off a mere 59 balls.
