Rajasthan were absolutely brilliant in the Indian T20 League 2022. Despite not being able to win the title, they managed to win a lot of hearts. The Sanju Samson-led side reached the final of the tournament, and lost to Gujarat in a low-scoring affair.
It is safe to say that Jos Buttler and Yuzvendra Chahal were their best performers this season. While the leggie picked 27 wickets in 17 games of this edition, the Englishman scored 863 runs in the same. As a matter of fact, Buttler also equalled Virat Kohli’s record of scoring the most number of centuries in a single edition (four).
Even outside the field, Buttler and Chahal constantly grabbed attention for their cheeky banters. Recently, a video of them dancing went viral as well. It featured Chahal’s wife Dhanashree Verma. It is to be noted that she is a choreographer.
In the video, Dhanashree can be seen prompting her husband, as well as Buttler, to dance. While the aggressive player was sincerely dancing, Chahal stopped midway and was seemingly just watching them. This moment was chuckle-worthy, to say the least. After they finished their dance, Buttler and Chahal even sat down on the floor and performed the spinner’s iconic pose.
An important point to be noted is an image of Chahal sitting down on the floor had gone viral a few years ago, and went on to become a famous meme as well. Thus, this video instantly went viral. Fans found the video really adorable. Despite not being able to win the title, the Rajasthan players still seem to be enjoying their time.

Earlier, Buttler had expressed his disappointment over failing to win the trophy. He stated that they really wanted to win the tournament. Further on, he congratulated the Gujarat-based franchise for winning the title.
“Exceeded all my expectations apart from today – the trophy we really wanted. Disappointed with that. Big congratulations to Hardik and team. Deserving champions. My goals are to play my role for the team and try and react on the day regarding what the game is asking me to do. In good teams you have a lot of trust in everyone. We have huge trust in everyone in our team,” said Jos Buttler during the post-match presentation of the Indian T20 League 2022 Final.
