It is not often that an in-form batter like Jos Buttler is left stunned during a media interaction, especially after scoring a hundred in the last game. Buttler scored the first hundred of the IPL 2022 against Mumbai Indians on Saturday (April 2) to lead the Rajasthan Royals to a second-successive win in IPL 2022.
A fan during a media interaction with Jos Buttler on RR’s Facebook page, asked the English wicketkeeper batter when he will open the batting with leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal? “Yuzi is trying his best to move up the order. But I think he needs to go to gym more to warrant a move up the order,” Buttler said with a big smile during a virtual media interaction ahead of RR’s third game against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Tuesday (April 5).
Chahal had recently posted a hilarious Instagram story asking Buttler if he could open the batting with him. Watch Yuzvendra Chahal’s Instagram video here…
“The experience that Yuzi and (Ravichandran) Ashwin bring to the side is critical. The game against Mumbai Indians was in balance but Ashwin and Chahal managed to spin the momentum towards us,” he added.
