Jos Buttler is having a fantastic season with the bat for the Rajasthan Royals, having already scored three hundred. His first century was against the Mumbai Indians and his second was against the Kolkata Knight Riders.

Buttler is presently playing for the Rajasthan Royals in the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The right-handed batsman has 491 runs in just seven games and is presently the tournament’s leading run-scorer. In IPL 2022, the hard-hitting opener has also struck two hundred.

On Friday, he hit his latest century against the Delhi Capitals, helping the Royals climb to the top of the points table. Rajasthan has been able to continuously put up huge totals because of Buttler’s efforts.

Buttler told ESPNcricinfo that “he would love to see Viv Richards bat in T20 cricket and that Rohit Sharma is the modern era’s fantasy opener. It’s important to remember that Buttler and Rohit have played previously together for five-time champions MI.”

Buttler scored 35, 100, 70, 13, 54, 103, and 116 runs for the Rajasthan Royals in the first seven games. Buttler now holds the Orange Cap for the current season, having scored 491 runs in seven games, and he hopes to keep up his good form.

With 10 points from seven games, the Rajasthan Royals are now in first place in the points table.
