Rajasthan Royals (RR) mentor Shane Warne has given a warning to Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) to watch out for England star Jos Buttler in the impending match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in Jaipur on Sunday afternoon.

The England-based batsman Buttler hasn’t had the best of seasons thus far. However, the former leg-spinner Warne believes that the team’s gloveman is going to have a good match.

So far, in the ongoing season eleven, Buttler scored just 110 runs in six outings at an average of 22. His highest score of 29 came against Delhi Daredevils on April 11.

Warne also met VVS Laxman, who is serving as a mentor in Hyderabad’s camp. It is well known that Shane Warne and VVS Laxman shared a great rivalry in their playing days.

Both of these legendary players have taken their friendship off the field as well.

Warne revealed that they have some surprise on an offer:

Warne further added that the Royals have some surprises too under their sleeve. This means that the hosts can make some changes to their playing combination.

Meanwhile, Royals (RR) will serve as host to Sunrisers in the 28th match of the IPL 2018. Hitherto, Ajinkya Rahane-led team has had a mixed season while having won just three matches and lost as many.

Interestingly, Royals will lock horns against the potent bowling battery of Sunrisers.

When these two teams had met earlier in the season, Hyderabad had got the better of Rajasthan by nine wickets.

Men in Blue were skittled out for a paltry total of 125. Thus, they would look to give a better batting performance.

I think he will do something super special with the bat as he is the best finisher in the game & in fact, all the boys look in super touch, going to be a ripping game & yes we have some surprises too ! ✔”.
