KARACHI: England's star opener Jos Buttler is in sensational form in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 for Rajasthan Royals. The right-handed batter credited former Pakistan cricketer Mushtaq Ahmed for identifying his flaws and assisting him in improving his game.

In an interview with Ravichandran Ashwin, Buttler revealed that the former Pakistani leg-spinner helped him with his batting.

"Mushtaq Ahmed always told me to hit on the off-side first and then come around to the leg-side. If you are looking only on the leg-side, you will never hit the ball on the off-side," Buttler said.

With 491 runs at an average of 81.83 and three centuries in seven innings, Buttler leads the list of highest run-scorers in the IPL 2022.
