Robin Uthappa

Robin UthappaRight-hand batsman Aiyudda Robin Uthappa (born 11 November 1985 in Kodagu, Karnataka) is an Indian cricketer. A son of an international hockey referee, he made his one-day international debut in the seventh and final match of the English tour of India in April 2006. He had a successful debut, making 86 as an opening batsman before being run out. It was the highest score for any Indian debutant in a limited overs match. Uthappa first came to the public's attention when he made 66 for India B against India A in the Challenger Trophy in 2005. The following year, in the same tournament, Uthappa made matchwinning 93-ball 100 against the same team which propelled him in the big league. Previously, he had been a member of the India under-19 team that won the Asia Cup. Once a wicketkeeper-batsman, his List A batting average of near 40 with a strike rate of approximately 90 has made him regarded as something of a limited overs cricket specialist. He was recalled to the ODI side in January 2007 for the series against the West Indies where he smashed a 70 from just 41 balls. He was recently selected in the 15 member squad of the Indian cricket team for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007 held in West Indies in March-April 2007.
