Yuzvendra Chahal has established a reputation for being the entertainer of the Rajasthan-based franchise. He is always ready for a fun time, and keeps pulling pranks on his teammates. He has made several jokes about how he will jeopardise Jos Buttler's position as the opener in the Indian T20 League 2022. He was recently seen playing some big hits in the nets, and Buttler was at the receiving end of it.
The Rajasthan team's official Twitter account shared a video of Buttler bowling to Chahal in the nets. In the few balls he encountered, the leg spinner hit a few big shots. The two can also be seen arguing over how many runs he would get for a few shots. "Legend has it that Yuzi is still screaming 'Four runs!'," read the caption of the video.

The debate, however, did not end there. Yuzvendra Chahal retweeted the Tweet, suggesting he hit Buttler for a few fours and a six in the nets. "4 4 4 4 4 4 6", he simply wrote in the tweet. The Englishman disagreed with him and responded, "Are you joking?"

Meanwhile, in their respective roles for the Rajasthan team in the Indian T20 League 2022, the two have been outstanding. With 625 runs in 12 matches, Buttler is the tournament's highest run-scorer. He has three centuries this season. Chahal, on the other hand, has taken 23 wickets in his 12 matches. He presently holds the purple cap.
Despite having a great season, the men in pink and blue are not through the playoffs just yet. They currently are in the third position with seven victories in 12 games. They play their remaining two games against Lucknow and Chennai, on May 15th and 20th, respectively. The Sanju Samson-led team will look forward to winning both of their remaining games to qualify for the playoffs. Notably, the 2008-champions have not qualified for the playoffs since the 2018 edition.
