Cricket is a gentleman’s game and the sport has shown us some great gestures of sportsmanship over the years. Rivals go out of their way to showcase the virtue and the comradeship regularly gives fans some heart-warming moments on the field.In one such incident during the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021,the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) vs Rajasthan Royals (RR) gave us a glimpse of sportsmanship that epitomises the spirit of cricket.
On Thursday, RCB dominated the match throughout and RR never looked in the contest at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. However, Jos Buttler showed why he has a big heart amidst some competitive cricket. In a video shared on the official Instagram account of IPL, one can see Buttler lending a helping hand to his opponent Devdutt Padikkal. It happened when Padikkal was on song in the middle and nearing his maiden century and his shoe laced got untied. Buttler stepped in, tied his rivals shoe laces and silently went back to his fielding duties.
