New Delhi, Online Desk. The final of the Indian Premier League 2022 is going to be a title battle between Gujarat Titans and Rajasthan Royals this evening. This is a match between the two top teams that have shown a strong game in this season. The team of Gujarat Titans finished first in the league stage while Rajasthan came second. In this match, all eyes will be on Rajasthan opener Jos Buttler, he can make a big record of former RCB captain Virat Kohli.
This season of IPL has been very special for Rajasthan and Gujarat. On one hand, where Gujarat, who entered the tournament for the first time, has won every match on the strength of a new hero, then for Rajasthan, Butler’s bat has run in almost every match. Butler, who has scored four centuries this season, also scored a century in Qualifier 2 in the last match. Now he would like to make the team champion by playing memorable innings in the final as well.
Virat Kohli record can be broken
Nothing seems impossible for Butler with the way he has batted throughout the season. In the last match against RCB in front of Virat Kohli, he equaled his record by scoring his fourth century in the season. Now he is close to Kohli’s record for the most runs in a season. Well this task is not easy but nothing is impossible in cricket. The score of 973 runs is in front of Butler, which he has to cross and then this record will be his.
Most runs in a season
Virat Kohli scored a total of 973 runs in the 2016 IPL season, scoring 4 centuries after playing 17 matches. David Warner scored 848 runs this year while playing for Sunrisers Hyderabad. Butler has scored 824 runs in IPL 2022 with 4 centuries in 16 matches so far. With 150 runs, he will make the record of scoring the most runs in a season. This task, if not easy, is not impossible as Chris Gayle and Brendon McCullum have earlier scored over 150 runs in the IPL. If Joe Buttler does this, then he will also become the first batsman to score five centuries in a season.
