Any total looks chaseable now, says Uthappa

Jaipur: Explosive Kolkata Knight Riders batsman Robin Uthappa feels cricket is going through a paradigm shift to a power game and any total on board now looks chaseable. The changes in the game are dynamic. It is changing as a sport, anything looks like chaseable, I feel cricket is shifting to a power game now so chasing is the choice. There is a paradigm shift in the nature of the sport, said Uthappa, who played a 36-ball 48-run knock to chase down Rajasthan Royal's total of 160-8 on a slow wicket. With three wins from five matches, Uthappa said he is satisfied with KKR's progress in the tournament. "We are happy in the position we are. We are at the top and might have played a game more but we played good cricket. It is important to peak at the right time," he said. "It is a two-halve tournament. Initially we were looking to qualify for the playoffs, you need the momentum. After six games we would have a nice break so we are quite happy where we are. Every game is important for us, said Uthappa. The 32-year-old was also happy with his batting form after making useful contributions in the middle order. "I did not have a good domestic season but I always felt I was striking the ball well. That is what I feel now. Need to get better and better," said Uthappa.
