Ever since Yuzvendra Chahal has joined the Rajasthan in the Indian T20 League, he has kept everyone laughing. For example, asking stupid questions to trick the team's social media handle admin. He has been keeping the spirits alive in the Rajasthan camp. This time, it was Jos Buttler who had to face the burden of Chahal's questions.

After a match-winning performance and a century against Mumbai, Jos Buttler had a conversation with the Indian leg-spinner. Chahal questioned Buttler whether he feels comfortable opening the batting knowing he would bat at No. 8 or 9. Rajasthan's opener was far too fast to reply in a playful manner.

"Absolutely! Ever since you turned up this year, you have been putting pressure on the opening spot. Have to take my time to score some runs to keep you on the outside," Buttler told Chahal in a video posted on the Indian T20 league website.

Further on, he said that he enjoyed his century against Mumbai. He also praised Yuzvendra Chahal for almost getting a hat trick in the game. After Buttler scored a century in the first innings, Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin were able to get the better of Mumbai's batters in the match.

"Feels fantastic to contribute to a win. Was a bit nervous at the halfway mark, wondering if the innings will result in a win or not. The last few months have been wonderful, so just carrying on from there," Buttler said in the post-match presentation after winning the Man of the Match award.

Rajasthan's brilliant effort was able to restrict Mumbai to 170 when they were chasing 194 runs. This was Rajasthan's second win in two games that they have played so far.
