Robin Uthappa played good innings for Team India in white-ball cricket in his playing days. The veteran batter was part of a couple of franchises in the Indian Premier League, with Chennai Super Kings being his last.
Uthappa supported the four-time champions in Qualifier 1 between CSK and Gujarat Titans. Surprisingly, fans targeted him for showing his support for the MS Dhoni-led team.
He was accused of selling his soul to Yellow Army as he never supported Kolkata Knight Riders, his previous franchise, similarly.
Uthappa didn’t take the hate lightly and hit back at trolls.
“I’m not surprised by the hate I’m receiving here for what has been MY experience. Peace and love to you all,” he wrote.
Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan and fans came out in his support.
