Earlier, RR team manager Romi Bhinder had recalled how Buttler ‘high-fived’ a picture of Warne. “We have put up a picture of him where his hand is overstretched. A few days ago, I saw Jos giving him a high-five and saying, ‘legend’!” Bhinder had said in a tribute video for Warne.
“There are small things like this where the team feels his presence.”
