In fact, this is the first time Kolkata have dropped their star batsman who had played a key role in their title-winning campaigns in 2012 and 2014.Uthappa played a slow inning that arguably cost Kolkata Knight Riders two points in their previous match against Royal Challengers Bangalore. Chasing a mammoth total of 214 after a Virat Kohli 100 at the Eden Gardens on Friday, Uthappa made 9 from 20 balls and put tremendous pressure on the rest of the batting unit.On the other hand, India’s premier wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav was taken to the cleaners by RCB batsmen as he conceded 59 runs in his four-over quota — the joint-worst figures for a spinner in IPL cricket.Kuldeep broke down after completing his spell on Friday as he was distraught after conceding 27 runs in his final over. RCB all-rounder Moeen Ali took him to the cleaners, hitting him for three sixes and two fours in the over.Kuldeep, who had been playing quite a lot of cricket at the international level, has lacked the x-factor in IPL this season. Kuldeep has managed to pick up just four wickets from nine matches at an economy rate close to 9 runs per over.advertisementFast bowler Prasidh Krishna also faced the axe after conceding 52 runs in his four-over quota against RCB. The Karnataka pacer has picked up just two wickets from nine matches for KKR at an economy rate of over 9 runs per over in IPL 2019.KKR brought in mystery spinner KC Cariappa to replace Kuldeep Yadav while big-hitting batsman Rinku Singh replaced Robin Uthappa. Left-arm pacer from Andhra Pradesh, Prithvi Raj was handed his IPL debut by KKR as the 21-year-old replaced Krishna.Also See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
