A white-ball mercenary, and one of the most audacious hitters of a cricket ball, Joseph Buttler was threatening to be one of the hottest stars in town circa 2015. And, so it did not come as a surprise when defending champions Mumbai Indians shelled out INR 3.8 Crores for his services ahead of the 2016 auction.


Buttler's true calling, however, came in 2018 when he was picked by the Rajasthan Royals in the mega-auction. Having predominantly batted in the middle-order in his early IPL days, the RR's think-tank's decision to promote him to the opening spot proved to be a huge turning point in Butler's career.
