After failing in the last few games of the Indian Premier League 2023, Jos Buttler returned to his best against Sunrisers Hyderabad. He missed out on a well deserving hundred when Bhuvneshwar Kumar got rid of him.
The RR opener mustered 95 off 59 balls, with the help of 10 fours and 4 sixes. He shared a partnership of 138 with captain Sanju Samson, who was unbeaten on 66 off 38 balls as the home franchise put up 214/2 in 20 overs.
Fans lauded Buttler for his score against the Orange Army. Here are some of the reactions.
Earlier, Shubman Gill couldn’t complete his hundred in the day’s first match between Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants. He remained unbeaten on 94 as GT won the game by 56 runs.
