Rajasthan Royals' opener Jos Buttler has joined Rahul Dravid and Dwayne Smith in an unwanted list in IPL.

Rajasthan Royals’ opener Jos Buttler has joined Rahul Dravid and Dwayne Smith in an unwanted list in IPL. The right-handed batter was going great guns before losing his form in the last few games of the Indian Premier League 2022.

However, he still leads the runs tally by a big margin. Buttler has scored 629 runs with the help of 3 hundreds and as many fifties in 14 games. Lucknow Super Giants’ skipper KL Rahul, who has amassed 537 runs, is second on the list of highest run-getters.

Jos has followed a set pattern in the 15th season. The wicket-keeper batter of England is taking time before slamming the bowlers for fours and sixes. He has played a lot of dot balls in the process.

The 31-year-old is in second place among the players with the most dot balls played in the powerplay overs of an IPL season.

Rahul Dravid holds the record with 131 dot balls.
