England attacking batsman Jose Butler, who was ruled out of the first match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) Rajasthan Royals due to an isolated rule, returned against Kings XI Punjab. He said he was excited to play for the team on Sunday. Before Saturday’s match, Butler said that I was interested in playing my first match, it was good to practice with the players. There’s a positive energy with the team so I’m really looking forward to getting on the field.
He said at the end of the net session at the Sharjah ground that the strength around the team is great. Clearly, confidence has increased since the first match. The practice was great and we enjoyed each other. A very competitive match can be expected against Kings XI Punjab. Punjab captain Lokesh Rahul played an unbeaten 132 against Royal Challengers Bangalore which will be a cause for concern for Rajasthan. The 26-year-old batsman is known for playing big shots effortlessly and the field boundaries here are even narrower.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Butler said that Lokesh Rahul played an exceptional innings against RCB. As usual, his wicket will be very important. I think because of the small ground and the dew we will see one more match with one more score. For Rajasthan Royals, Sanju Samson and captain Steve Smith batted brilliantly against the Chennai Super Kings, helping the team start the tournament with a win. Butler said winning the first match was good. The team has performed great. After a great batting, the bowlers performed brilliantly in difficult situations.
