Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler along with Jofra Archer are the three foreign players around which the fortunes of Rajasthan Royals have revolved this season. In what hasn’t been an ideal season for RR, the trio has played important role in keeping RR’s chances of playoff alive.
While Stokes all-round abilities are none to other, Buttler’s 360-degree show have won a couple of games for RR this season. In last two matches, Rajasthan Royals have registered two great chases with Stokes leading the charge at top and Buttler finishing it quite beautifully.
The left-hander smashed a hundred against Mumbai Indians and a fifty against Kings XI Punjab, both in winning cause, and earned the Man of the Match. After the Victory against KXIP, Rajasthan Royals posted a video of Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer indulging in a rapid-fire round. The all-rounder made a special pick when his teammate Jofra Archer asked him to name most talented played, he’s ever played with, in a fun rapid-fire round.
Expectedly, Stokes named Jos Buttler without blinking an eye as he said: “I reckon, talent-wise, just because of his versatility, Jos Buttler.”
Apart from RR, Jos Buttler along with Ben Stokes and Eoin Morgan has been the pillar of England Cricket Team’s batting in recent times. The trio has played a major role in making England No.1 across formats in limited overs Cricket. While Stokes and Morgan have dominated the proceedings in middle order, Buttle has been the one who has carried the baton at every position.
With the rapid evolution of Cricket in last decade, most of the top teams look for flexibility in terms of batting order. Luckily, for England, its Buttler who has aced it all. Whether it’s opening the innings or finishing the innings, Buttler has done it all with exemplary success. And little wonder! he is the finest White ball Cricketer England has ever produced.
