Jos Buttler scored a remarkable ton, which was his second in the proceeding version of the IPL, as Rajasthan Royals put up a massive 217/5 against Kolkata Knight Riders.
In response, KKR got off to a wobbly start, losing Sunil Narine early in the first ball of the run-trail. Shreyas Iyer and Aaron Finch both fulfilled their respective half-centuries to keep KKR in competition.
Meanwhile, Buttler outreached the triple-digit figure in 59 balls prior being removed by Pat Cummins on 103.
In the meantime, Shimron Hetmyer too resumed his fine run, scoring an undefeated 26 off 13 balls to supply the Royals with a late boost.
Rajasthan captain Sanju Samson also looked in great touch, scoring 38 off 19 deliveries.
Following being invited to bat first, Buttler apace with Devdutt Padikkal appended 97 runs for the opening wicket prior Padikkal was removed by Sunil Narine on 24(18).
