While some players have enjoyed good fortunes with some franchises, some others have not been treated well during the cash-rich Indian Premier League (IPL).

In a recent interaction, former Indian batter Robin Uthappa revealed his shocking experiences during his stint with Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) after he had a disappointing run of form in the 2019 season.

Uthappa alleged during a recent interaction that he faced a lot of judgement and bad treatment following a bad performance in 2019. He added that he believes that as a senior professional, he was not treated properly at KKR.

“Lack of performance and the judgments of performance. Let’s see, for example, I remember I was absolutely fine during my last year with KKR. For whatever reason, towards the end, personally from my perspective, I wasn’t treated very well. As a senior pro, I wasn’t treated very well,” said Uthappa.

“And in that instance, my last match for KKR was a horrible game. I had a bad day at work and my work was there for everyone to judge and criticise and I got criticised. I got taken to the cleaners. And I can tell you, in that time after that, for a good. Two-three months, I switched off my comments on social media,” he added.
