Will Mumbai be able to keep Buttler quiet?
Updated - Apr 19, 2019 8:27 pm
The Rajasthan Royals (RR) have not been able to hold on to their fortress this time and the other teams have conquered Jaipur easily. Mumbai Indians (MI) are the visitors in the match 36 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and the home team has to be at its best to overpower them. It is a must-win game for the Royals and they will take heart from the fact that they defeated Mumbai in the previous face-off.
However, for that to happen again, Jos Buttler has to play a top knock once again. He lit up the Wankhede stadium last time around with an 89-run outing and the Royals would be hoping that the England cricketer does the same again. Mumbai will be well aware of the threat he brings and they also know that the Pink Army depends a lot on him.
Record against the opposition (MI):
Jos Buttler has a special liking to Mumbai’s bowlers. He has scored two half-centuries in the last couple of matches and will be itching to have a decent outing against his favourite opposition.

Record at the venue (Jaipur):
Sawai Mansingh stadium is blessed to witness some of the blitzkriegs from the England superstar. He averages 54.25 in 10 innings at the venue and has four 50-plus scores to his name.

When it comes to considering the recent form, no one is near to Jos Buttler. MI bowlers somehow has to get him in the first few overs and if they don’t do it, they will have to face the wrath. Buttler, more often than not, has given his team some quick starts and he will be aiming to play a match-winning knock again.
Last 10 innings across all formats – 23, 89, 23, 37, 59, 6, 5, 69, 23, 150.
Last 5 innings in IPL 2019 – 23, 89, 23, 37, 59.
Costs 10.5 credits in the batsmen category and is picked by 95% of teams. A very good option to make the captain as his success rate is quite good.
