Jos Buttler required multiple stitches after injuring his finger in Rajasthan Royals’ match against Punjab Kings on Wednesday, and he is expected to miss the team’s next match against Delhi Capitals.
On April 8, the Royals will play Delhi in Guwahati.
Buttler needed multiple stitches on his left hand’s little finger, preventing him from starting the game.
Rajasthan’s five-run loss to Punjab.
As Buttler was receiving stitches on his finger after injuring it while taking a catch to dismiss Punjab batter Shahrukh Khan, Ravichandran Ashwin was promoted to open.
Buttler ran from deep and took a sliding catch off Jason Holder’s bowling in the final over, but he looked in pain as he walked off the field with a couple of balls left.
“Jos Buttler was unfit. After the catch, he was getting stitches for his finger “During the post-match presentation ceremony, captain Sanju Samson stated.
Indeed, Jos Buttler, who received a sponsor’s award for the best catch, arrived to collect his check with a distinct white strapping on his little finger.
The finger will almost certainly be sore, and fielding may be an issue, so the Royals’ medical staff may decide to rest him for a game or two, with the next match to be played within 72 hours.
Shikhar Dhawan, who has been leading the Punjab Kings unit admirably, admitted to being nervous as Shimron Hetmyer and Dhruv Jurel took the game to the wire.
“There were a few nervous moments, but I kept my cool, as did the bowlers. There was a lot of dew on the ground.
The bowlers did an excellent job. I was happy with the score we carry out. They bowled well and delivered excellent yorkers “He complimented Sam Curran’s death bowling.

Getting early wickets in the Powerplay also helped, according to the captain.
“Scoring 197, then my bowlers came in and took early wickets, keeping the pressure on, and Nathan came on and took wickets. We never let the game slip through our fingers. There were some difficult moments, but I believe it was a great team effort.”
“We’ve gotten off to a good start in these two games, and I’m working hard to increase my strike rate. The wicket quickly restores momentum. We have a deep batting lineup this year, so we can keep the momentum going by hitting boundaries and putting pressure on the other team.” “
The main goal for Sam Curran was to nail the yorkers.
“When it comes to those situations, I believe you know if you
You’ll be fine if you nail your yorker. Some days it works and some days it doesn’t, but today was our lucky day “said Curran, who has a contract worth more than $2 million.
“I was attempting to have our ball changed because it smelled like soap. I’m not sure why they changed the ball, but we can’t do anything about it “Curran mentioned the dew.
Bowling with a wet ball is the most difficult challenge, according to Curran.
“It’s incredibly difficult. You practice by dipping balls in water.
It’s extremely difficult to keep the seam in place. You try to bowl a yorker cross seam, but it’s not a natural ball to bowl.
It’s extremely difficult, but everyone has to do it, so there’s no point in complaining.
“We just have to keep improving because the batters and bowlers are improving, and that’s why this tournament is the best in the world.”
On April 9, the Punjab Kings will play the Sunrisers in Hyderabad.
