Jos Butler, Lokesh Rahul, Jos Butler ....
For the same reason, the last time Butler's name was written, it was left blank. Who knows how many more centuries will be in IPL now!
The two who have scored centuries so far are Laxmau Super Giants captain Rahul and Butler of Rajasthan Royals. The reason for writing the name of the English wicketkeeper batsman twice is that he has scored two centuries in this year's IPL.
The first was against the Mumbai Indians, and the second was witnessed by the spectators at the Kolkata Knight Riders and Brabourne Stadium today. Rajasthan made 216 runs for 5 wickets in Butler's great century.
Butler's batting at Marquette was so captivating today that he was forced to tweet Hersha Bhogle, a well-known Indian commentator, who said, "I thought I would take a break from cricket today. I noticed the Butler show was going on. I had to return to watch the game. '
Butler hit four sixes from Andre Russell, Umesh Yadav, Varun Chakraborty and Pat Cummins for Rajasthan. Butler and Devdoot Parikkal scored 16 runs in the third over of Umesh's innings and also scored 15 runs from Varun in the next over.
Butler's 'show' did not stop even though he gave wicket to Sunil Narine for 24 runs in the 10th over. Cummins' full toss in the 18th over to straighten the six that hit the century will be remembered for a long time. Butler picked up a century off 59 balls. Earlier in the seventh over, Cummins hit four fours and picked up a half-century off 29 balls.
Though Cummins was out in that over after picking up the century, Rajasthan was getting the scent of scoring 200 runs by that time. Butler's 103-run innings off 61 balls with 5 sixes and 9 fours will be remembered by Rajasthan fans for a long time.
Butler played only Narain. That is probably part of his plan. Following the success, Telegraph reporter Tim Wigmore tweeted, "At the moment, Jos Butler is at another stage in the T20. Even after watching Sunil Narine, he scored a century off 59 balls.
Butler picked up three centuries in a total of seven innings in the last IPL and this year's edition of Milling. He scored two centuries in this IPL. Butler also has the highest number of runs, centuries and maximum four-sixes in the IPL so far. Sanju Samson scored 36 runs for Rajasthan.
