Rajasthan Royals swashbuckling top-order batsman Jos Buttler, who recently scored a magnificent century against SunRisers Hyderabad, has presented an autographed bat to his opening partner Yashasvi Jaiswal before departing to England.

Sometimes, you have to swallow your ego: Jos Buttler after scoring his maiden century
Right from the start of the tournament, Buttler was struggling with the bat and was not at his absolute best. However, he found the long lost form and scored a century, which was his first in his entire T20 career. After the match, Buttler spoke about how he felt when wasn’t among the runs.
“Sometimes you would have to swallow your ego and accept that things haven’t been happening like you would like them to or you don’t feel in perfect touch or you are not picking up the ball well and just give yourself some time and find a way. I like to be aggressive and scoring at a strike rate from the outset but sometimes that isn’t possible,” Buttler told.
“Just try and stay in and to keep the belief that at some point something will click and you will turn that around. Of course, I will take confidence from this knock and cricket will always show that you are only one good shot away or a slice of luck away from being back in form,” he concluded.
