In every exciting moment of every Rajasthan Royals win, a girl has been seen cheering for the team sitting in the stands. This girl is none other than Lara van der Dussen, wife of RR batsman Rassie van der Dussen. But, she is mistakenly believed to be Jos Butler’s wife by the fans. Buttler’s wife and family came into the bio bubble last week, while South African batsman van der Dussen has played only three games this season but his wife is constantly on the field to cheer for the team.
There has been confusion among fans that Lara is Jos Butler’s wife. In a recent interview, Lara has spoken openly about this situation. Speaking on the Royals podcast, Lara said, ‘People think I’m Jos Buttler’s wife. I think it is because I come across the camera a lot of times during his batting.
Lara further said, ‘Dhanashree and I cannot control ourselves in the field because we are very excited. Jos Buttler’s 100 kept on increasing as we went ahead in this tournament and maybe my celebration has made people think that maybe I am his wife. It is quite interesting.
Lara said, ‘Rossie hasn’t played that much in the IPL so I can’t show him the same sentiment I show for Butler. For now, I will cheer for Jos Butter and enjoy it.’ Let us tell you that Jos Buttler remains the backbone of Rajasthan Royals in the batting department till now. With four hundred so far in the tournament, 824 runs have come off his bat in 16 matches at an average of 58.86.
