In the 15th season of IPL, Jos Buttler scored his third century of the season against Delhi Capitals while playing for Rajasthan on Friday. He also became the first foreign player to do so. Buttler also made the biggest opening partnership for Rajasthan with Devdutt Padikkal. Buttler took the news of the bowlers of Delhi Capitals fiercely and scored a century in 57 balls. He was dismissed for 116 runs off 65 balls. He also hit 9 fours and 9 sixes in his innings.

Third century of this season in IPL
Butler’s third century in the IPL is this season. Earlier this season, he scored 103 runs against Kolkata Knight Riders and 100 against Mumbai Indians.

One century away from equaling Virat’s record in IPL
Butler is one century behind Virat Kohli in terms of scoring the most centuries in a season. Kohli holds the record for most centuries in a season of IPL. Kohli had scored a total of 4 centuries in 2016. If Butler scores another century, he will equal Virat’s record. After Virat and Butler, Chris Gayle (2011), Hashim Amla (2017), Shane Watson (2018) and Shikhar Dhawan (2020) have scored two centuries each.

Highest partnership for the first wicket for Rajasthan
Buttler along with Devdutt Padikkal made the highest partnership for the first wicket for Rajasthan. 13 years ago in 2009, Graeme Smith and Naman Ojha shared a 135-run partnership for the first wicket against Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings). Butler and Devdutt put them behind with a partnership of 155 runs.
