Chennai Super Kings have made it to the finals of the Indian Premier League yet again. They have now made it twelve times to the playoffs. They beat Gujarat Titans by a slender margin off 15 runs. They will play the finals at the Narendra Modi Stadium at Ahmedabad. They will have to wait for the winner of Qualifier 2. The Yellove Army will be looking to win their fifth title.


Robin Uthappa who has played CSK for two seasons in 2021 and 2022 had received a lot of hate from the Kolkata Knight Riders fans after he was seen supporting CSK in the Qualifier 1 against GT. Uthappa had actually spent a large part of his IPL career at KKR. The fans from Kolkata were fuming when he pledged his loyalties to CSK.

Irfan Pathan also reacted to Uthappa's tweet. I’m not surprised by the hate I’m receiving here for what has been MY experience. Peace and love to you all!! Uthappa wrote on Twitter. To which Irfan said, Hate ko hata mere bhai. Bas pyaar ko dekh. There were a lot of mixed reactions from the fans though with varying comments flowing all over on social media.


Uthappa had spent five years in the Purple and Gold. He was also part of the 2014 winning side along with Gautam Gambhir. The Karnataka batter had a grand stint of five-years there. The right-hander scored 2439 runs at a strike rate of 136.25. He scored 16 fifties for the franchise. Uthappa changed bases to Rajasthan Royals in 2020 after a torrid season in 2019 for KKR.

When Uthappa starred for CSK in 2021 he was a part of the title winning side in that year. CSK rose like a phoenix from the ashes in 2021 after they finished seventh on the points table in 2020. CSK did not have the side to play in different conditions at the UAE that year when the second half of the IPL was shifted there. MS Dhoni has led CSK to four IPL titles.
