Former Indian wicketkeeper batter Robin Uthappa is currently unleashing hell with his bat in the ZIM Afro T10 League. He recently played a blazing-fast knock which included his trademark walking down the pitch six. Uthappa is part of the Harare Hurricanes in the ZIM Afro T10 League, which defeated Durban Qalandars a day ago. During the post-match interview, Robin Uthappa expressed the desire to become to a coach in IPL 2024.
“It depends, I would certainly love to be involved with the team. If opportunities do come, I’ll certainly consider it. Yeah (coach), I would love to get involved in setting up…Maybe cricket operations, or director of cricket, where I feel like, I know what it takes or give a team the best chance to win the game,” Uthappa said in the post match ceremony.
“Because I’ve been with different teams and I know how good teams work, can set structures in place which will help achieve them, something I love to do. So those opportunities, come up I’ll certainly consider them,” Uthappa added.
Uthappa retired from all forms of the game in September 2022. He has won the IPL trophy twice. Once with Kolkata Knight Riders and once with Chennai Super Kings. Currently, he is playing in the ZIM Afro T10 League.
“Well for me, I want to play more cricket. I was waiting 10 months of the year to play just the IPL. Ranji Trophy was not in the picture, you know at the age of 36 you are taking the spot of the youngster. You are not playing red-ball cricket and just appearing for white-ball cricket for practice because the level is altogether different when IPL is compared to domestic cricket,” he further added said.
