Robin Uthappa has ended his 15-year association with KSCA after the state body granted him a NOC to play elsewhere.

Sources said that NOC was given to Uthappa last week.  The 31-year-old who has played 130 First Class matches could not be reached as he was travelling abroad. Uthappa has also played 46 ODIs for India besides 13 T20 Internationals.

It is said that Uthappa had offers from two State teams but which team he would play for is still not confirmed. But, it has been widely reported that he is set to play for Kerala. Uthappa was dropped from Karnataka squad for the latest Ranji Trophy season after being ignored for a league game against Maharashtra in Mohali.
