IPL 2022 - Jos Buttler

Kevin Pietersen heaped praises on his countryman Jos Buttler for his consistent performance in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League. "Jos Buttler has made a fabulous start to the IPL. He’s the best T20 batter in the world at the moment, by a mile.

His array of shots and his execution of shots is unmatched, but I also love his calmness and his presence of mind in the middle," Jos Buttler told to Betway and was quoted as saying by Metro.co.uk.

"That’s what sets these guys apart. They are very calm and very calculated, and then have the phenomenal shot-making and ball-striking," Buttler said.

Moreover, he also shared his thoughts about Mumbai Indians and said, "The IPL has been a catastrophe for Mumbai. They say that batters win you sponsorships and bowlers win you premierships.

I just can’t understand why Mumbai have weakened their bowling so much by using up a spot on an injured Jofra Archer and letting Trent Boult go elsewhere."

"Left-arm seamers are such a valuable commodity in the shorter form of the game because of the different angle and Boult is as good as it gets. He’s world-class.

I think he’s their biggest loss, ahead of Quinton de Kock and the Pandya brothers, but they are all fabulous, match-winning players. Mumbai seem to have had their soul ripped out at the mega auction," he added.

"Lots of the star players that made them what they are have left and they have made a horrible start to the competition. Mahela Jayawardene must be wondering what’s going on," he further added.
