Team Saurashtra is currently in Nadiad playing against Gujarat at the GS Patel Stadium in the ongoing season of the Ranji Trophy 2018. Robin Uthappa the member of team Saurashtra was seen analyzing the first T20 game between Australia and India as a commentator along with his former KKR teammate Gautam Gambhir. Now, this did not go down very well with a lot of netizens and a few fans asked the wicket-keeper batsman if he had preferred being a commentator over being a cricketer.

Uthappa obviously read the comments from the fans and decided to issue a clarification about the same. He took to Twitter and wrote that he had no plans to retire and he would continue playing the game until the time he enjoyed. “Just to clear the misconceptions out-there. I'm giving commentary a go coz I'm currently recovering from an ankle surgery. It's by no means takes away from how much I love competing and will continue to do so till I don't enjoy it anymore or can't physically (sic)," Uthappa wrote on Twitter.

Irfan Pathan had a few encouraging words for Uthappa. He replied to the tweet and wrote, “I’m sure u will be good at com bro.”

Robin Uthappa has been one of the most consistent performers in the domestic circuit, but has not been successful to regain his position in the national side. Uthappa last played for India where the team toured to Zimbabwe in 2015.
