Robin Venu Uthappa (Kodava Takk-Kannada: ರಾಬಿನ್‌ ವೇಣು ಉತ್ತಪ್ಪ)Malayalam: റോബിന് ഉത്തപ്പ) audio|Robin_Uthappa.ogg|pronunciation (born 11 November 1985 in Kodagu, Karnataka) is an Indian cricketer. His father is Venu Uthappa, an international hockey referee from Kodagu, Karnataka, and mother Roselyn is a home maker and hails from Kozhikode, Kerala. He made his One Day International debut in the seventh and final match of the English tour of India in April 2006. He had a successful debut, making 86 as an opening batsman before being run out. It was the highest score for any Indian debutant in a limited overs match [cite web | title=Cricinfo - Records - India - One Day Internationals - High scores on debut | url=http://stats.cricinfo.com/ci/content/records/284184.html | accessdate=2007-08-30] .He is also named 'The Walking Assasin"

Uthappa first came to the public's attention when he made 66 for India B against India A in the Challenger Trophy in 2005. The following year, in the same tournament, Uthappa made matchwinning 93-ball 100 against the same team which propelled him in the big league. Previously, he had been a member of the India under-19 team that won the Asia Cup. Once a wicketkeeper-batsman, his List A batting average of near 40 with a strike rate of approximately 90 has made him regarded as something of a limited overs cricket specialist.

He was recalled to the ODI side in January 2007 for the series against the West Indies where he smashed a 70 from just 41 balls.

He was selected in the 15-member squad of the Indian Cricket team for the 2007 Cricket World Cup held in the West Indies in March-April 2007. He played in all 3 group games, but only scored 30 runs in total as India suffered a shock defeat to Bangladesh and a loss to Sri Lanka resulting in the team not qualifying for the Super 8 stage.

In the sixth ODI of the NatWest Series 2007-2008, he scored a sensational 47 of 33 balls to take India to a thrilling victory, keeping Indian hopes alive in the 7 match series that they were trailing 2-3 before the match. Used to batting as an opener, in this match he came in at the unfamiliar position of no 7. When he came at the crease India were 5 down for 234 after 40.2 overs, still needing 83 from less than 10 overs. After Dhoni got out in the 47th over with the Indian score at 294, Uthappa kept a cool head to take India to the target with two balls to spare in a remarkable victory.

Uthappa also scored a crucial 50 against Pakistan in the 20-20 World Cup in South Africa, when India were tottering at 36/4. With this, he became the first Indian to score a 50 in a 20-20 International match. [http://stats.cricinfo.com/ci/engine/records/batting/most_runs_innings.html?class=3;id=6;type=team Cricinfo - Records - India - Twenty20 Internationals - High scores ] ] India subsequently won the match in bowl out 3-0, where he bowled one of the three deliveries that hit the stumps.

Uthappa has played at all junior levels and first class for Karnataka Cricket State Association.

He is presently contracted to the Mumbai Indians for the DLF IPL and has had a fairly successful opening season.
