Butler and Yuzvendra have a funny conversation
Even before the start of the IPL, Chahal had expressed his intention to open for Rajasthan in a witty tone and for this he had asked Butler. Chahal had expressed his desire to open with Butler. After the Mumbai match, when Chahal interviewed Butler, he asked that when you came to bat, you seem more confident because I am playing at number eight-nine? Responding to this, Butler said, Absolutely, ever since I came in this season, you are continuously pressurizing me to open. I have to score some runs to keep you out. Buttler also said that he really enjoyed the innings on Sunday and praised the Indian spinner for his spell. Chahal dismissed Tim David and Daniel Sams in successive deliveries and missed a good hat-trick.
