IPL 2024: Jos Buttler's absence a big hole but RR have back-up, says Riyan Parag

Star RR all-rounder Riyan Parag has expressed confidence in the team's ability to cope with the absence of star player Jos Buttler, citing the presence of backup options like Tom Kohler-Cadmore (TKC). Notably, Buttler has left the Royals camp and will miss the remainder of the season to take part in England's T20I series against Pakistan. "We are a good side. We've got backups for everyone. TKC (Tom Kohler-Cadmore) is our backup now and we've been practising with him as well. "It was a big loss but I think we will deal with it. It was something that we knew before the season started and we will be handling it well since we are a professional side," Parag said, addressing the media at the Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati on Tuesday.
