Also, post RR’s loss former Indian batsman Virender Sehwag was at his humorous best. Sehwag who’s now known for his unique analysis about the game took a sly dig at the Rajasthan Royals below-par performance.

He further talked about Jos Buttler who was the lone warrior against MI during the match. Sehwag sarcastically trolled the other Royals batsmen who gave absolutely no support to Buttler in the chase.
Sehwag said, “Boult and Bumrah pressurized the Rajasthan batsmen just like how parents in India pressurize their daughters to get married after completing college”.
“Jos Buttler reminded me of those wedding caterers who remain to clean up even after all guest has left”, Sehwag added on his YouTube channel named ‘Viru ki Baithak’.
