Star Wars 2018, RR vs CSK: Jos Buttler vs Shane Watson

Watson can steal Buttler’s thunder when the Royals welcome Chennai Super Kings at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Friday.

Though late, but Jos Buttler has sketched a silver lining for the struggling Rajasthan Royals in this season. A promotion in the batting line-up, as an opener, exposed his superpowers. The Englishman smashed three half-centuries — 67 (against Delhi Daredevils), 51 and 82 (both against Kings XI Punjab).

But a certain 36-year-old gentleman can steal Buttler’s thunder when the Royals welcome Chennai Super Kings at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur on Friday. Shane Watson, who scored a 57-ball 106 in the first-leg, will be a key player for the yellow army. The Australian all-rounder scored 328 runs at an average of 32.80. He also claimed six wickets.
