Twitter responds as Robin Uthappa, Shivam Dube Stitch Incredible 165-run Partnership

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) batters Robin Uthappa and Shivam Dube gave a masterclass on Tuesday in their game against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at DY Patil Stadium.

CSK lost the toss again and was asked to hit first on a good hitting surface. It was the same story again when Ruturaj Gaikwad was fired early after playing a few shots.

Moeen Ali also followed and CSK was down to 36/2 in the 7th over. It was left to Dube and Uthappa to rebuild it and they took their time initially. They slowly pushed the total to 60/2 by the end of the 10th.

It seemed that the momentum was entirely with the Bangalore team, but what followed left RCB stunned. The counterattack started in the 11th, bowled over by Wanindu Hasaranga, who went for 13 runs.

A flurry of sixes ensued and out of nowhere CSK had passed over 100 in the 13th. Both Uthappa and Dube hit more sixes than fours, something very rarely seen in sport.

Uthappa made his way to a 50-ball 88, which included 4 fours and 9 huge sixes. Dube contributed with a 45-ball 94, crushing 8 sixes. Their partnership ended in the 19th over, but they had already scored 165 runs in just 73 balls.

Here’s how Twitter responded to Robin Uthappa, Shivam Dube’s partnership:
