Rajasthan Royals (RR) opener Jos Buttler was sensational in his previous game against the Mumbai Indians (MI) where he went on to score a ton before getting dismissed. RR eventually won the game as they restricted MI from chasing down the score. After the win, Buttler indulged in a chat with their spinner Yuzvendra Chahal.
The two have had a gala time on and off the field. Chahal has been teasing Buttler and been asking him to open the game alongside him. The fun banter started even before Buttler arrived at the RR camp. Chahal had taken over the team’s official social media handle for a few hours, where he posted a picture of him batting and captioned it “10000 retweets and he will open with Jos Buttler Uncle”.
Days later, RR had also shared a video of Chahal asking Buttler to open the game with him during the net practice. In a video shared by the IPL website, Chahal asked him if he felt confident while opening the game for RR, knowing that he (Chahal) would bat at No. 8 or 9. To this, Buttler had a hilarious reply ready as he said:
“Absolutely! Ever since you turned up this year, you have been putting pressure on the opening spot. Have to take my time to score some runs to keep you on the outside,” said Buttler cheekily.

Jos Buttler praised Yuzvendra Chahal on his amazing run with the team so far
Buttler mentioned that he enjoyed the game against MI, and also praised his teammate Yuzvendra Chahal for his outstanding spell in the game. Chahal missed out on a hat-trick after he picked up Tim David and Daniel Sams during his innings.
After RR put up a total of 193 onboard, the spinners made sure that MI batters couldn’t chase it down. Just when MI had got some hopes, the RR spin-duo of Chahal and Ashwin made it impossible for them to go ahead in the game.
When MI needed 39 runs off the final two overs, Prasidh Krishna, who also dismissed Rohit Sharma in his very first over, conceded just 10 runs in the final over as the five-time champions lost the game by 23 runs.
