Buttler’s unbeaten century on Tuesday night helped Rajasthan Royals achieve a historic win, equalling the highest successful run-chase in IPL history. This was Buttler’s 7th century in the IPL, placing him just behind Virat Kohli, who has achieved this feat 8 times.

Harbhajan Singh emphasized Buttler’s remarkable talent, stating, “He is a special player of a different level. Jos Buttler hasn’t done this for the first time. He has done this many times and we will see him doing this job many times going forward as well. He is an incredible player. We don’t talk much about him because he is not an Indian player.”

The former Indian spinner compared Buttler’s century to the achievements of Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni, suggesting that if Kohli had scored a similar century, it would have been celebrated for months. He advocated for Buttler to be celebrated as a legend of the game, similar to Indian players, highlighting the need for equal recognition for non-Indian players in the IPL.

Buttler’s century came in a challenging situation for Rajasthan Royals, with the team struggling at 121/6 at one point during the chase. However, Buttler’s calm and composed innings, coupled with his ability to accelerate when needed, guided the Royals to a dramatic victory. He finished the match unbeaten on 107, displaying his experience and composure under pressure.

Harbhajan Singh commended Buttler’s ability to hold his nerve and play his natural game despite the wickets falling around him. He noted that Buttler’s innings was a testament to his skill and mental strength, highlighting the importance of belief and composure in high-pressure situations.

“He was very calm and composed and just continued to do his job. Whenever he got an opportunity, he hit fours and sixes, and took singles and doubles. He kept moving the game forward. When batters are getting out from the other end, it’s very important to hold your composure and play your own game,” he elaborated.
