Rajasthan Royals
Rajasthan Royals Jos Buttler is on fire right now.

Jos Buttler has scored 718 runs in 15 IPL 2022 matches so far. He is the sixth IPL batsman to reach the 700-run plateau in a single season.

In the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, Jos Buttler can do no wrong. Against Gujarat Titans in Kolkata on Tuesday, the Rajasthan Royals opener hit 89 off 56 balls to help his club reach 188/6 in 20 overs. In the present IPL, he scored 700 runs with 12 fours and two sixes. He has 718 runs in 15 matches thus far. He is the sixth batsman in IPL history to score 700 or more runs in a single season.

During the course of the inning, he also hit another significant milestone. After Alex Hales and Luke Wright, he became the third Englishman to achieve the 8000-run barrier in the T20s with a score of 36. However, Buttler is only one hundredth away from equaling Virat Kohli’s record of most IPL centuries in a single season. Buttler has three this year, compared to Kohli’s four from the 2016 season.

Buttler’s innings of 89 against GT were mostly due to good fortune and a fair degree of bravery. Buttler, who had struggled in the second part of the season, got off to a poor start but made the most of a pair of dropped catches during his 56-ball innings that included 12 fours and two sixes.

After scoring 39 of his first 38 balls, Jos Buttler went on to hit another 50 off his next 18 deliveries faced, giving him 718 runs in 15 games.

Hardik Pandya missed a sitter on 43 and Rashid Khan grassed him on 69, giving Buttler two chances to save the match.

When Alzarri Joseph was bowled out in the penultimate over, he stepped up his game by hitting three boundaries in the same over.

Before anything else, skipper Sanju Samson showed off his swagger by smashing a brilliant 26-ball 47 in response to the latest selection snub (5×4, 3×6).

During a moment when Buttler was struggling, the wicketkeeper-batsman threw down some boundary shots.

When Samson and Buttler were paired together, the Royals skipper’s dominance was summed up by a 68-run partnership, of which 47 came from the former’s bat.

Dayal’s six over long-on was the first indication that this was going to be a dangerous match.

Sanju took advantage of a lack of line and length from the Titans’ pace combo of Mohammed Shami and Alzarri Joseph to lift the score to 55/1 in six overs.

After the power-play, none other than the wily Afghan spinner put a halt to the momentum, coming into the crease.

In spite of the dry conditions, Rashid was able to use his ‘bunny’ Buttler to his advantage by employing a variety of different approaches.

As Sanju fell to Sai Kishore’s flighted delivery in the next over, it appeared as if he was under pressure to take on Sai Kishore after giving up just two runs in his second over.
