Jos Buttler has continued his fine form in IPL 2022. The Rajasthan Royals star batter scored a well compiled 70 runs in his team’s third game against Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Wankhede stadium.
He didn’t hit any four in his knock but smacked 6 maximums during his stay at the crease. The wicket-keeper batter also completed his 100 sixes in the cash-rich league and became the 11th overseas player to reach the milestone.
Chris Gayle, with 357 sixes, leads the list of most sixes by an overseas player in the tournament. Gayle is also ahead in the overall list of all the players to have played in the best T20 tournament in the world.
