Rajasthan Royals and England batsman Jos Buttler notched up his maiden T20 hundred after he scored 124 off 64 deliveries against Sunrisers Hyderabad on Sunday in Delhi.
Buttler was off to a slow start initially but then caught the pace and went past the 100-run mark in 56 balls.
Talking about his knock after the RR innings ended, the wicket-keeper batsman joked that former England captain Alastair Cook would now stop telling him that he has got one T20 hundred more than Buttler.
"I have spent a lot of my career in the middle order where hundreds aren't easy to come by. At the top of the order you get a great chance. I finally will have Alastair Cook stop telling me that he has got one T20 hundred more than me (laughs)," Buttler said.
Speaking further about his innings, Buttler admitted that he hasn’t really had a good time in the middle prior to this knock and wanted to leave a mark.
"Really enjoyed it. Great to spend time out there and have fun. I didn't find it easy at the start. I haven't been feeling at my best form for a while now. so a little bit of a struggle and just acceptance. I just tried to hang in there. At times I have been guilty of trying to get back into form too quickly and not give myself a chance. I just got better as the innings went on," he added.
RR posted 220/3 in 20 overs after being put into bat.
