After the completion of half journey of the Indian Premier League’s (IPL) eleventh edition, the critic masters earlier termed Jos Buttler as one of the failures of the tourney. But, ever since he walked at the openers’ role, he looked all-together a new player.

English gloveman Buttler continuously whacking the ball for Rajasthan Royals has grabbed many eyeballs. He registered fourth consecutive fifties on a row in which two were Man of the Match performances.

Krishnappa Gowtham’s knock was crucial: Ajinkya

Speaking of the match, Ajinkya Rahane quoted that it is magnificent from Buttler at the opening role and added that the cameo from Krishnappa’s willow is the crucial moment of the game.

Rahane further hailed Buttler for his incredible work ethic and termed his way of dealing spinners was too good.

“As I always mention, this format is always about giving your best every day. Buttler’s consistent batting at the top is magnificent. KG’s knock was crucial. I was nervous, but sometimes you have to control your emotions as a captain and we all had a feeling that Buttler will take us through. The way he handled the spinners was too good. He’s learning a lot, spending time with the experienced players and Warnie,” Rahane said during the presentation.

”Not easy bowling in the powerplay (talking about Gowtham). It’s all about taking one game at a time right now. Now going to Mumbai, we all know how dangerous a side they are. Would like to thank Rajasthan Royals and Rajasthan government for supporting this initiative with cancer patients,” he added to his lines in post-match presentation.

However, the win ensured Royals to stay alive in the tourney. Now, they equalled Mumbai Indians (MI) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the points table with five wins in their 11 games.

Coming to the future assignment, they will make a move to take on the hosts, Indians at Wankhede Stadium. The positive that would get for Rajasthan is that their skipper, Rahane is the local kid and the conditions of Mumbai are bread and butter for him.
