Jos Buttler of the Rajasthan Royals (RR) praised Pat Cummins during a Q&A session, saying that the Australian pacer would be a fine match for England’s cricket team. Buttler is now training for the IPL 2021, where he will play for Rajasthan. The English wicketkeeper-batsman answered questions from fans in a video posted on Rajasthan’s official Twitter account. One fan challenged the 30-year-old cricketer to name “one player from outside England who will be an ideal match for your national team?”
Buttler responded to the question by saying that he would love to see Cummins play for England.
“Pat Cummins is who I’d pick. In all forms of the game, I believe Pat Cummins is one of the best fast bowlers in the world right now “, he responded.
“I’d like to see him play for England alongside Jofra Archer. That’d be a formidable bowling lineup. So, with that one, I’m going to tell Pat Cummins “, he went on to say.
In IPL 2021, the Australian pacer will play for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR).
The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 will begin on April 9, with Mumbai Indians (MI) taking on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the season opener.
On April 11, KKR will play SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH), while Buttler and RR will face Punjab Kings in their first match of the season on April 12.
“My new favourite player, I’d probably say is Quinton De Kock,” Buttler said when asked about his current favourite cricketer.
“He’s a South African wicketkeeper-batsman, and his style of play is something I admire. I admire his free spirit when he performs. Left-handed people, in my opinion, still look better than right-handed people “remarked the Englishman
