Earlier in the game, KKR skipper, Shreyas Iyer won the toss and chose to bowl first which has been the case in all the matches of the IPL 2022 so far. KKR had one change as they brought in Shivam Mavi for Aman Khan, while Rajasthan made three changes. Trent Boult was back in the XI replacing Jimmy Neesham, Karun Nair replaced Rassie van der Dussen and Obed McCoy made his RR debut as he replaced Kuldeep Sen.

After many matches, Rajasthan Royals’ openers gave them a terrific start, with mainly Jos Buttler doing the heavy scoring in the powerplay. Padikkal and Buttler added 97 runs in 9.4 overs before Padikkal was bowled by Sunil Narine. Sanju Samson then came to the party and smashed 38 runs in 19 balls with 3 fours and a couple of sixes, but the whole RR innings was about Jos Buttler.

Jos Buttler smashed 50 in 29 balls and reached his second IPL century this season off 59 balls. He got out for 103 in 61 balls, and caught off the bowling of Pat Cummins, but it was an excellent inning. Once Buttler got out, RR batters started throwing their hands at every ball in an effort to gather as many runs as possible. One of these batters was Riyan Parag, who scored 5 runs in 3 balls and was dismissed thanks to an excellent effort from Pat Cummins and assisted by Shivam Mavi.

On the first ball of the 18th over, Parag tried to smash Narine straight over his head, but Pat Cummins took an excellent running catch from long-off. However, he struggled to keep his balance and threw the ball towards Shivam Mavi who ran in from long on, before falling. Mavi completed the catch one-handed with a jump of his own.
