Jos Buttler names his dream opening pair from the past and current era of the game
 

The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League is getting heated every day with a lot of controversies and some nail-biting encounters. Likewise, we witnessed MS Dhoni's last over finish against Mumbai Indians when the two giants met each other in this edition of the tournament.

And, in the previous match, Rishabh Pant was engaged in the no-ball controversy and asked the players to come back to the dugout.

With a lot of things going around, the English batter Jos Buttler has become the talk of the city with his splendid show with the bat in this edition of the Indian Premier League.

So far, the right-handed batter has mustered 491 runs after featuring in just 7 matches, playing at an average of 81.82 with three hundred and two fifties under his belt.

Sir Viv Richards

The swashbuckling opener has opened up about his dream opening pair from the past and present era of modern-day cricket.

In that case, Jos Buttler names the legendary batsman Sir Viv Richards from the past and the current skipper of the Indian team Rohit Sharma with whom he wants to open the innings.

He revealed this during a conversation with ESPNcricinfo and also stated that he will be desperate to watch the great Viv Richards playing in the shortest format of the game. He also opened with Rohit Sharma when he represented Mumbai Indians in this cash-rich contest.
