IPL 2033: Jos Buttler-Yashasvi Jaiswal assist RR to record their highest partnership in IPL history

It has been 15 years for the legendary Rajasthan Royals team to win the inaugural IPL trophy and each record broken thereafter seems special to the team as they still await their second trophy.

Last year the franchise were inches close to grab the trophy but the fate was all over the debutants Gujarat Titans.

The first ever game in the IPL 2023 played by RR showcases an incredible confidence and team’s strength and trust in the opening pair.

Without any significant change, once again Yashasvi Jaiswal and Jos Buttler stepped out for the start of IPL 2023 season.

It was a privilege for each fans who were just awestruck watching the duo bat, who carried on the momentum throughout the power play.

Jos Buttler ended up playing his incredible fifty and moments after lifting his bat, he was bowled by Fazalhaq Farooqi.

But the RR duo were unaware that they have made an elite record as this was the highest score by Rajasthan Royals in the power-play session.
