Robin Uthappa reckons Sai Kishore should be a regular feature in Indian cricket team

Robin Uthappa is enthusiastic about how Sai Kishore will go about his work.

It is no secret that the cash-rich IPL has unearthed several young talents who have gone to represent the national cricket team. Former Indian cricketer Robin Uthappa has reserved the highest respect for Gujarat Titans’ spinner Sai Kishore.

The cricket expert reckons that Sai Kishore has a truckload of potential in him and that he should be a regular feature in the Indian cricket team. The 27-year-old slow left-arm orthodox spinner currently represents Gujarat Titans in the Indian Premier League.

According to Uthappa, Sai Kishore has the necessary skills in him to become a regular player in the Indian team. Furthermore, he also added that he doesn’t get the point on how he hasn’t represented every game for the Ahmedabad-based franchise.

The Chennai-born spinner played just three games out of eight games so far. Overall, he has accounted for six dismissals at a bowling average of 14.17. He maintained an economy of 7.73 and registered his best bowling figures of 4/33 against Punjab Kings.

“He’s a class act. I really think he should be someone who’s a regular member of the Indian cricket team, just with the skills that he’s got. I don’t know how he hasn’t played every game that GT has played,” he added in a statement.

“He is miserly with the ball and very shrewd as a bowler, very confident in his own skills. There’s a lot to love about this kid and he’s very hardworking as well. I am actually as gung-ho about him as Brett is about Jake Fraser-McGurk,” Uthappa echoed.
