Uthappa’s huge sixes force ball replacement twice

Bangalore : Robin Uthappa smashed six sixes for his 38-ball 68 runs at the M.Chinnaswamy stadium here Tuesday in the Royal Challengers tie against Chennai Super Kings, forcing the replacement of the ball twice as it could not be located.

Two of his sixes were huge. One went out of the stadium and another time the ball could not be traced though it fell in the stands. Both the times the balls had to be replaced.

Former India captain Mohammed Azharuddin and popular Kannada actor and former Congress MP M.H. Ambareesh were among the thousands who watched the hard-hitting Uthappa enable his team reach 171

As usual Siddhartha Mallya, son of RCB owner and liquor baron Vijay Mallya, was cheering his team. Missing this time was Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone, whose presence in one of the previous outings of Royal Challengers here had led to tabloid frenzy that the two were dating.
