Rajasthan Royals leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal always entertains his fans. Recently he exchanged his caps with Rajasthan Royals batsman Jos Buttler. Now he has caught everyone’s attention with his joke, as he has said that he is focusing on opening with Jos Buttler. He has also said that he will break the record of Virat Kohli. In a recent video posted on Twitter by Rajasthan Royals, Chahal and Butler were seen in their opposite roles at the nets. 31-year-old Chahal has taken 24 wickets in 13 matches so far in IPL 2022 and is in the race for the Purple Cap.

At the same time, since he has joined Rajasthan Royals, he is often seen joking with Jos Buttler. Yuzvendra Chahal said, if I had got a chance to open, I would have broken every record, not only Jos Buttler. I think Virat Kohli bhaiya’s record (973 runs) is also left for me. I’m going to break that record. I will break that record in 10 matches because I have to score a century in every match. Butler has scored 627 runs in 13 matches this season.

The way Butler performed in IPL 2022, it seemed that he would go close to Kohli’s record of 973 runs. However, this does not seem to be happening now. He has been failing in the last four matches and that means Kohli’s record is unlikely to be broken anytime soon. He has scored 627 runs in 13 matches so far at an average of 52.25 and strike rate of 148.23. This includes three centuries and three half-centuries.

However, in last couple of matches, he hasn’t been able to go past 30 runs mark. With 2 to 3 matches left in Rajasthan Royals’s course, Jos Butler will aim to finish it off as close as possible to the 973 runs mark. For that, he will need 2 centuries at least. It will not be surprising to see him hit another ton because the Englishman is in sublime touch in this season.

Talking about Yuzvendra Chahal, he should stick to his bowling department where he leads best and flourishes. Certainly, he is specific character who loves to have a laugh to keep everything entertaining.
