IPL 2020: Jos Buttler will play a vital role for the Rajasthan Royals.
Meanwhile, Jos Buttler continues to play a key role for the Royals this IPL season as well. After failing to do much in the opening spot, management decided to use him as a finisher at number 5. He was okay with accepting the change and eventually ended up playing amatch winning knock in a match they desperately needed to win.
Rather, RR Captain Steve Smith said Butler could have the same influence as Andre Russell. The latter’s form will be important to the team going deep into the tournament, and the Royals will hope that foreign players continue to do well for them. (IPL 2020)
