In Thursday’s IPL 2023 match between Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata, opener Jos Buttler had a poor game. The IPL Governing Council fined Buttler 10% of his match fees for his Level 1 mistake. Buttler is the captain of England’s white-ball team.
Even though the Royals beat KKR by nine wickets on Thursday, Buttler was out in the second over of the chase with no runs. The Englishman gave up his wicket to help Yashasvi Jaiswal, who then broke the IPL record for the fastest fifty.
Buttler and Jaiswal got into a fight, and Buttler turned down a quick single on the third ball he faced. But Jaiswal was already halfway down the wicket, while Buttler refused the single with his hands up. Buttler chose to run anyway, and Andre Russell’s direct hit caught him short of his crease. He was out of the game.
“During Match 56 of the TATA Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 between Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata on May 11,” a BCCI release stated, “Jos Buttler of Rajasthan Royals was fined 10% of his match fee for breaking the IPL Code of Conduct.”
“Mr. Buttler owned up to the Level 1 offense, disregarding Article 2.2 of the IPL’s set of principles. The statement stated that the match referee’s decision “is final and binding for Level 1 violations of the Code of Conduct.”
Sanju Samson, RR’s captain, thought it was great that Buttler gave up his wicket to Jaiswal, a younger player. You realize the climate is great when Jos Buttler discards a wicket for Jaiswal,” Samson said at the post-match show.
Jaiswal claimed that Samson’s appointment as Buttler’s replacement empowered him to continue working in spite of Buttler’s dismissal. It happens, but no one prepares for it. Sanju Bhai said, “Relax, continue onward. ” “It’s a great opportunity for young players to play with greats, and it’s a blessing to play with so many great players,” Jaiswal stated.
It was Buttler’s third no-bundle of the IPL 2023 season. During the IPL 2022 season, he won the Orange Cap. Buttler’s partner Yashasvi Jaiswal is still in the running for the Orange Cap. He is only one run behind the winner, Faf du Plessis of Royal Challengers Bangalore, who has 575 runs in 12 matches so far.
