Robin Uthappa and Sunil Chhetri
A video has been going viral all over the internet of how West Bengal’s Governor La Ganesan Iyer was seen pushing Bengaluru FC captain Sunil Chhetri get into the frame. Former India cricketer Robin Uthappa has extended his support to Chhetri.
Under Chhetri, Bengaluru FC clinched their first-ever Durand Cup trophy defeating Mumbai FC BY 2-1 at the iconic Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata. After the win, during the post-match presentation, West Bengal Governor Gansesan, who was standing behind Chhetri, was seen pushing Chhetri to pose for a photograph with the Durand Cup trophy.
Uthappa took to Twitter and wrote: “That’s just all sorts if wrong!! Sorry @chetrisunil11 you deserve so much better than this!!”

The same incident happened when Siva Sakthi Narayanan was receiving the President’s Cup during the presentation and West Bengal sports minister Aroop Biswas pushed him to get into the frame.
Meanwhile, Bengaluru FC has also scripted history by clinching the Durand Cup, Shimla Trophy and President’s Cup for the first time in their history. Also, they have also won in the I-League (2014 and 2016), Federation Cup (2015 and 2017), Super Cup (2018) and the Indian Super League (2019).

In the Indian Premier League, he was one of the most valuable players known for his aggressive batting. He has represented six teams in IPL and had success with the Chennai Super Kings (2021) and Kolkata Knight Riders (2014).
