New Delhi: It is said that time never remains the same. Sometimes he takes you to the throne, and sometimes he throws you on the floor. This is very common in the life of sportspersons, where sometimes they are on high and sometimes their stars are in decline. In recent times, veteran Indian batsman Virat Kohli has been the biggest example of this. Currently in IPL 2023 Rajasthan Royals This can be said for veteran batsman Jos Buttler, who has seen this phase within a year.
The IPL 2023 season has been full of ups and downs for the star opener of Rajasthan Royals. He started the season in a very strong way, but once his bad phase started, he continued to run. A few days ago, the hope of returning from the innings of 95 runs was again raised, but it seems that his bad phase continues.
4 centuries to 4 ducks
In an important match against Royal Challengers Bangalore in Jaipur, Butler could not even open the account. In the previous clash of both the teams, Butler was dismissed without opening the account. But Butler was not only dismissed for 0 in these two matches, but this was the fourth time in this season when Butler’s account could not even be opened. That is, he got out on ‘Duck’ 4 times.

Before this season, Butler was dismissed for 0 only once in his IPL career. In his debut match in 2016, he could not open the account. This Butler proved to be the biggest star of the last season. He scored 4 centuries in that season and scored the maximum 863 runs.
Jaiswal also failed for the first time
By the way, not only Butler, but also for his young opening partner Yashasvi Jaiswal, the match against Bangalore did not prove to be good. Yashasvi, who scored a half-century in just 13 balls in the last match itself, could not open the account this time. He was dismissed by Mohammad Siraj inside two balls in the very first over. He could not open the account for the first time in this season.
