With the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 set to resume, Rajasthan Royals (RR) announced that wicketkeeper-batsman Jos Buttler won’t be taking part in the competition’s UAE leg.
The Englishman, who is a crucial cog in the RR unit, is expecting a second child with his wife soon. IPL 2021 was suspended midway through the season in May due to a rise in COVID-19 cases within the tournament’s bio-secure bubbles.
