Kolkata Knight Riders have been on a roll since the beginning of this year's Indian Premier League. Earning a comfortable victory against Sunrisers Hyderabad in their first match, they scored an exceptional 218 at home, against Kings XI Punjab to win with a margin of 24 runs.
As a matter of fact, the veteran Robin Uthappa has played a big part in winning both. Getting a good start against SRH, he was unfortunately bowled out by Siddharth Kaul in the 12th over with a decent score of 35.
But this time he entered the field with more conviction and made sure he didn't do any silly mistakes, which eventually took him to the score of an unbeaten 67 in their share of 20 overs.
Adding both the scores of 35 and 67, Uthappa has bagged 102 runs till now, which puts him at the third spot in the quest for the 'Orange Cap,' while his teammate Nitish Rana sits on the top.
The trio of Rana, Uthappa and Dinesh Karthik provides KKR with some solid middle order base, later backed up by the young Shubhman Gill and the power-house Andre Russell, making them one of the most dangerous batting sides in the tournament.
