Buttler has scored 375 runs at a spectacular batting average of 75. Besides that, he has hit two centuries this season. He is also the one and only batter to hit 2 centuries this season. Buttler scored his first century against Mumbai Indians.

During the game, Jos Buttler hogged the limelight when he took an all-run four. It wouldn’t have been possible without Devdutt Padikkal as both the openers displayed amazing fitness levels to take four crucial runs for the side.
