The England wicketkeeper-batsman along with Sanju Samson are the two most important players in the Royals lineup. Buttler is playing for the Royals since 2018 and has scored over 1000 runs for the franchise in the past four seasons taken together. He previously had a 500-plus run season with the side and needs to have another one to help his side go all the way. He is certainly a contender for the Player of the Tournament award.
