Morne Morkel Names a batter capable of “destroying all opposing captain’s plans.” Morne Morkel believes Rajasthan Royals star opener Jos Buttler is one of those batters whose destructive batting can throw the opposing captain’s plans and strategies into disarray.
Former South African pacer Morne Morkel believes Rajasthan Royals star opener Jos Buttler is one of those batters whose destructive batting can throw opposing captains’ plans and strategies into disarray. Morkel said on ‘Cricket Live’ on Star Sports about the England batter’s match-winning century against Mumbai Indians in his previous game in IPL 2022: “The Boss, Jos… The bowling unit must occasionally declare that it is his day and enjoy the show. However, you must find a way to dismiss a batsman like him as soon as possible. He batted brilliantly in his century against Mumbai.”
“Took all of the shots and moved all over the place. He took his time getting used to the pace and bounce, but he eventually hit down the ground and square of the wickets. You simply cannot stop him “He continued.

When asked about the lines which the bowling unit needs to target against a player like Buttler, Morkel said, “It’s just the quality of a player. That’s why teams pay big dollars for players like Buttler to put pressure on the bowling attack. He’s a guy that if you don’t get him early, he will take the game away completely and destroys all the plans the opposing captain makes.”
On Tuesday, the Royal Challengers Bangalore take on an in-form Rajasthan in their third match of the season in a midweek blockbuster.
Two well-oiled bowling units will face off in what could be a dynamic war of the willow and leather, and there will be a lot more on the line than just two points.
