Vivo IPL 2021: 3 drummers who can replace Jos Buttler in phase 2 of Vivo IPL 2021.
Vivo IPL 2021: The first Indian Premier League (IPL) champions Rajasthan Royals (RR) struggled to get started in the Indian league and consistently failed to remove the irritating label of underdogs. The franchise has only managed to qualify for the playoffs 4 times out of the 11 outings it has made in the 13 seasons of the Indian Premier League.
In the recent Vivo IPL 2021 Phase 1, RR also didn’t have an encouraging release. They are in fifth place after the Mumbai Indians with 3 wins in seven games.
The Rajasthan-based IPL franchise has leaned heavily on its overseas rookies, England players to be precise. The likes of Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer, and Jos Buttler in recent times have formed their core, which is certainly a downside for the franchise as they eat up overseas slots in the game.
RR suffered two first jolts at the 2021 IPL as Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer were excluded due to injuries. Now, another English cricketer, Jos Buttler, has confirmed that he will not be available for the second phase of the Vivo IPL 2021 which is scheduled to be held in the United Arab Emirates in September October.
Here in this article, we will discuss 3 possible replacements for Jos Buttler for Rajasthan Royals for the remainder of IPL 2021.
Vivo IPL 2021: 3 drummers who can replace Jos Buttler in phase 2 of Vivo IPL 2021:
3. Evin Lewis:
Rajasthan Royals (RR) may opt for Trinidadian cricketer Evin Lewis as the first possible replacement for Jos Buttler. Evin Lewis has his name decorated with enormous punching abilities.
Lewis was first chosen by the Mumbai Indians (MI) in the 2018 IPL auction because of his brilliant punching power and sensational punching abilities. By the time he was selected in the IPL he had hit two hundred T20Is against India.
The left-handed batsman plundered 430 runs in 16 IPL outings for the Mumbai Indians in 2018 and 2019. He was exceptional in providing his team with a quick drift in the opening overs.
He is fairly active in the overseas T20 leagues and is a regular face for his teams, however, his brilliance in the overseas leagues did not defend his place in the IPL and was unsold during of the IPL 2021 mini-auction.
