IPL 2021 is just a couple of days away. The preparations are in full swing both from a player’s point of view and from an organisational perspective. The IPL council is leaving no stone unturned in ensuring a safe and great IPL. Teams are welcoming all their players into the setup.
IPL returns to India:
The IPL itself returns to India after a couple of years. IPL 2020 was hosted in Dubai. Hence IPL 2021 comes as a welcome change. There is no allowance of spectators in the stadium. But it is believed this won’t dampen the spirit of players. The IPL being conducted in India alone is a big relief.
Jos Buttler’s cute video with daughter:
Rajasthan Royals the inaugural winners of IPL are busy sharing stories of their players online. They are welcoming them as royally as possible. The RR team on Tuesday posted a cute little video on social sharing site, Instagram. The video featured England player and RR’s most explosive batsmen Jos Buttler and his daughter, Georgia. In the video, Buttler is seen holding Georgia while doing sit-ups. The sweet part of the video involves Georgia copying her father’s every action adorably. The cute daughter goes all out trying to imitate her father’s exercise drill. She does it all-be-it push-ups or any other exercise. The franchise rightly captioned the video calling it melts our hearts! We can’t agree more.

Buttler’s tryst with IPL:
Jos Buttler made an instant impression in IPL 2017 when he played a crucial role in Mumbai Indians winning the IPL. RR picked him in the 2018 IPL auctions. Buttler has been a major force for them since then. He opened in the 2018 edition and provided RR rapid starts. He single-handedly won them plenty of games. Buttler was moved to the middle-order last season. He played a crucial role in RR staying in the hunt for a playoff spot.
Buttler’s captaincy experience:
Buttler is coming off a middling series against India. He was in great nick in the T20I series while he couldn’t contribute much in the ODI’s. The captaincy experience will have helped Buttler for sure. He will be crucial to RR’s chances in IPL 2021. They will be banking on Buttler’s skill and experience to win a 2nd IPL title.
