Reports: RR request CSK to loan Robin Uthappa
The 14th edition of the Indian Premier League is at its peak as fans witness close matches every day, the last being Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Delhi Capitals by one run. However, Robin Uthappa is yet to play a game this year.
This year's Indian Premier League has been no different to last year as the franchises have been forced to play in neutral venues due to COVID-19 just like last year in UAE, though this year India.
And as a result of being part of the bio-secure bubble, many foreign players have opted themselves out of the Indian Premier League 2021 season. And of all, Rajasthan Royals have hit hard due to player availability.
In the current scenario, Rajasthan Royals only have four foreign players in their squad, and those are David Miller, Jos Buttler, Mustafizur Rahman, and Chris Morris.
And as per the latest update on SportsTiger.com, Rajasthan Royals management has requested Chennai Super Kings to send Robin Uthappa on loan to the Rajasthan-based franchise.
