Former India and Chennai Super Kings cricketer, Robin Uthappa has named his funniest players on JioCinema’s show, ‘Legends Lounge.’
This show features Suresh Raina, RP Singh, Parthiv Patel, Pragyan Ojha, Robin Uthappa, and host Aakash Chopra.
Chopra asked some rapid-fire questions to the panelists to which they gave some rather interesting and intriguing answers.
The first question that each of them faced was to name the most stylish player of the IPL. All of them took different names such as KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, AB de Villiers, and Yuvraj Singh.
For the second question on the most selfless player, everyone agreed upon MS Dhoni. But Parthiv Patel had his take on the question and quoted himself as a selfless player saying,
I used to do the work I was given which was to hit hard in the first six overs and then get out and come back to the pavilion.
There was a rather long sigh from Robin Uthappa on the next question about the most fashionable player.
Uthappa took his time and then answered that he thinks that it is Virat Kohli. Other panelists chose the names of Chris Gayle and Stephen Fleming. Parthiv Patel chose Lasith Malinga as the most fashionable player.
Ojha also supported Parthiv on Malinga saying,
You knock on his door during the IPL and he would walk out in a lungi with his trademark colourful bush of curly hair on top.
Uthappa names two of the funniest players of the IPL
Meanwhile, several questions were asked by Aakash Chopra to all the panelists.
The next question was who is the funniest player in the IPL to which several names once again came up.
While some chose Harbhajan Singh, Uthappa decided to step up his game and named Ambati Rayudu and Dwayne Bravo as the funniest.
According to me, the funniest two-some in the IPL is Bravo and Rayudu. They were a house on fire together.
On the other hand, Chopra and RP Singh discussed their First-Class cricket days.
They tell us make your runs in a ‘V’ but that day, Aakash’s ‘V’ was not in front but more towards third man! He hit a shot and yelled, ‘let’s look for 2 runs’, and I told him, ‘Aakash, complete the first and look at the second run later.
With this, all the other panelists joined in on the fun and said that’s where the idea of Aakashvani germinated.
For the final question, all the panelists had to choose their favorite stadiums to which names of Lord’s, Wankhede, Eden Gardens, Green Park, Chinnaswamy, and Narendra Modi Stadium were taken.
