Rajasthan Royals’ frontman and leading scorer, Jos Butler, who recently left the team due to personal commitments has become a proud father of a baby girl. Butler had shown amazing form in this year’s Indian Premier league and was scoring a lot of runs for the team.
He came into limelight during IPL when he fell victim to a mankading incident while playing against Kings XI Punjab. Captain of Kings XI, R Ashwin struck off the bails at the non-strikers end when Butler moved ahead of the line before the official delivery, this brewed a lot of controversies and a myriad of cricketers were seen supporting Butler.
Amidst all the controversies and crucial matches, Butler preferred to leave the tournament mid way to attend to his wife and accompany his family for the birth of their child, the couple got married in 2017 and had their first baby this year.
