IPL 2020: RR vs RCB: Jos Buttler plays a shot against Mumbai Indians© BCCI / IPL
Rajasthan Royals (RR) are in the odd position of having everything it takes to win games and getting very little in return in the current 2020 Indian Premier League (IPL) season. With Jos Buttler opening the inning, RR was expected to take huge points in the first few overs, but the Englishman was erratic. He hammered 22 of just nine balls against Delhi Capitals, so that’s the Buttler Rajasthan Royals hoping to rise up against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). For RCB, Chris Morris was a telling entry into the XI. Once he has recovered from his injury, the South African has shown his worth, and not just with the ball, as was evident against Kings XI Punjab. So this could be a real battle.
Buttler has played seven IPL 2020 games, scoring 168 runs with a high of 70 and a strike rate of 154.12. He’s unstoppable in his day but hasn’t always been there for Rajasthan Royals.
Morris has played three games and claimed five wickets, but it’s his 4.83 economy that has been a sensation.
These two are the main imports for their franchises so will have to justify their price tags and contribute effectively making this a showdown to watch.
