The Indian Premier League has tried to become the bridge between international and domestic cricket since its inaugural edition. The league provides youngsters with the chance to rub the shoulder with the international players. And, they form a good bond while staying together for a long time and giving nicknames to the teammates is pretty common too.
Recently, Rajasthan Royals’ captain Sanju Samson also gave a nickname to his teammate, Jos Buttler. In a recent video posted by the franchise’s Twitter handle, Samson can be seen delivering a speech after their win against Delhi Capitals.
“Thank you Jos Bhai”
He was talking about the performance and their victory which came on the back of David Miller and Chris Morris. He can be seen saying, “I really enjoyed the intensity in the ground today, and as Sanga said I was able to make some really good decisions.” Samson further continued by citing that it was Jos Buttler who helped him to make the decisions. However, he mentioned Jos Buttler as “Jos Bhai” in his speech which left everyone in laugh.
Samson added, “That was only possible because Jos bhai really helped me.” However, the word ‘Bhai’ means brother and it is a very common word that people use while addressing people in India. Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals’ social media used this word quite well to make a video, where players can be seen dancing to the tunes of ‘Jos Bhai’ and enjoying this as well.
And, at the end of the video, Sanju Samson can be seen saying, “Thank You Jos Bhai” as the entire Royals team starts laughing. The franchise uploaded the video with a caption, “Sanju’s got a new nickname for Jos.”

Rajasthan Royals’ last win came against Delhi Capitals, where an unbeaten 36 off 18 by Chris Morris and a half-century by David Miller helped them secure the victory. In their first match, Sanju Samson smashed a blistering 119 but it came for a losing cause against Punjab Kings. He has been leading the team for the very first time in the IPL as they released Steve Smith prior to the season, who earlier captained the side.
