Robin Uthappa has recovered completely from his ankle surgery and is back in action. The right hand batsman who plays for Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League, has stated that he is in a good place at the moment.

Representing Saurashtra in domestic cricket, he scored a well compiled 46 against Railways on his return to cricket in the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament.

He had to go under the knife to fix his ankle injury that kept him out of action for four months.

Uthappa had to go through tough rehabilitation routine at the KKR cricket academy to get back into the action.

“I am in a good place right now. Well honestly, it has been a learning curve for me – going through the injury, and then, the surgery,” Uthappa was quoted as saying by the KKR website.

“It was impeding the flexibility and movement around my ankle, and I have had it for the last three or four years.

“Immediately after the surgery, the range of movements around my ankle was almost twice as much as (it was) before the surgery even happened. So I am really happy to get it out of the way. I am happy to be back to playing cricket,” he added.
