Expecting a high-scoring game against KXIP: Buttler
The wicketkeeper missed RR's win over CSK as he was in quarantine after arriving in UAE with his family

After missing out in the first match, England wicketkeeper-batsman is all set to feature for Rajasthan Royals (RR) against Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) on Sunday at Sharjah. Buttler, who was in quarantine for a few more days as he had arrived in the UAE with his family, believes that RR will find a tough contest in KXIP and he expects a high scoring game. 

"KL Rahul was in exceptional form the other night against RCB, so he will be a key wicket as always and I think we'll see another potentially high-scoring game at Sharjah with small boundaries and the dew factor coming in," the prolific keeper-batsman said.

Talking about his return to the RR team, Buttler said he was excited to play his part.

"I am really excited to play my first game, it was great to be back in training with the boys, there's a great vibe around the team so I'm really looking forward to taking the field," Buttler said on the eve of the match.

"The atmosphere and energy around the squad is fantastic, obviously lots of confidence after that first game. The training has been very energetic, guys are lively and enjoying each other's company. So expecting a really tough match against Kings XI," Buttler said after a net session at Sharjah ground.

RR started off IPL 2020 on a winning note, beating CSK by 16 runs. They now have a chance to make it two wins in a row, which only DC have been able to accomplish so far in the tournament.
