Rajasthan Royals will be in action on 8 April 2023 against Delhi Capitals in the ongoing IPL. However, all fans are still wondering whether Jos Buttler will play or not in the match. In the last game, Ravichandran Ashwin came out to open in place of the star England batter. Later, it has been found that Buttler injured his finger after taking a diving catch of Shahrukh Khan against Punjab Kings.

After that, reports came out that Jos Buttler might miss the next game against Delhi due to the same injury. But, now, according to the reports of Sports Tak, Buttler is set to miss one week of the cricketing week due to the finger injury. Seeing that reports, Rajasthan fans went crazy and shared their vows on the social media platform.

Jos Buttler has scored 73 runs so far in two matches in IPL 2023 

Speaking of Buttler, he has scored 73 runs so far in two matches in IPL 2023. In the first match against SRH, he scored 54 runs off 22 balls and won the Player of the Match award. So, his impact on the Rajasthan side is quite irreplaceable since the last season. Now, if he misses the games of the upcoming week, Joe Root might make his debut or Devdutt Padddikal might open for the Rajasthan franchise.

After the loss against Punjab, skipper Sanju Samson said about the injury of Jos Buttler and the changes they made in the batting order. During the post-match press conference, Samson said: “Jos (Buttler) had a small injury. He was doing his stitches as while fielding he got injured. So the physio wanted some time, time was not there to get the stitches and go to open. The move was to send Ashwin bhai and then holding everyone back. He (Buttler) seems fine, I think he should be fine”.

Here is how fans have reacted to the reports of Buttler is going to miss one week of action in IPL 2023:
