Kolkata Knight Riders batsman Robin Uthappa has announced that he is the opening batsman that India are looking for.
Uthappa’s comments come after he smashed a magnificent 80 against the Mumbai Indians on May 14.
Uthappa’s last ODI for India came in 2008, while the last Twenty20 International he played was all the way back in 2012.
“I have definitely missed contributing to the success of our team in the last few years,” Uthappa told the Times of India. “As far as the hunger is concerned, I believe my performances are speaking on my behalf. And I do believe that I am the opening batsman that the team is looking for and am confident that I am going to contribute a lot to the country’s success in the future.”
