English batsman Jos Buttler is the backbone of RR’s batting line-up. Since IPL 2018 he scored 1400 runs for the team with a 40+ average and close to 150 strike rate. With the absence of England players in the IPL Jos Buttler is most likely to miss out the remaining season and team RR might suffer.

There are only a few players in the world who can fill Buttler’s void, Devon Conway is one of them. He alongside skipper Sanju Samson and South African David Miller will form an explosive batting line-up.
RR faced many problems at the time of IPL 2021 and they were able to win only 3 out of 7 matches. The inclusion of Conway in the team might solve numerous issues as he can bat in any position.
