Buttler achieved the feat last night during his team's match against Chennai Super Kings. Thanks to his composed half-century, Rajasthan Royals won the game by 3 runs.

Buttler held the fort after his opening partner Yashasvi Jaiswal got out early. With Devdutt Padikkal getting stuck, the English batter took it upon himself, and kept the scoreboard rolling.

Buttler reached the 3000-run milestone in 85 innings. Only KL Rahul and Chris Gayle had completed 3000 runs in fewer innings.

Buttler is in supreme form this season, having amassed 202 runs in his first four matches. His strike-rate of 151 is second only to AB de Villiers.

In 2022, Buttler created history by scoring four centuries, and finished up with over 800 runs, narrowly missing the record for most runs in a season held by Virat Kohli.
