Buttler’s match-winning innings against KKR marked a significant comeback after missing the previous game due to fitness concerns. His unbeaten 107 off 60 deliveries orchestrated RR’s historic chase, securing their second consecutive victory in the IPL and catapulting them to the top of the points table.

With this remarkable performance, Buttler stands just one century away from equaling Virat Kohli’s record for the most centuries in IPL history. RR’s thrilling win over KKR underscores their momentum in the tournament under the leadership of Sanju Samson.
