Twitter Erupts As Jos Buttler Smashes 4th Century Of The Season, Guides RR To The Final Of IPL 2022

Rajasthan Royals’ (RR) Jos Buttler was the hero of his franchise’s victory over Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Qualifier 2 of IPL 2022 on May 27, 2022, as he hit his 4th century this season, and put RR into the finals of the tournament.

Qualifier 2 of IPL 2022 between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) got underway at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Motera, Ahmedabad. Sanju Samson of RR won the toss and chose to bowl first. Both the teams came into this critical encounter with unchanged playing XIs.

RCB didn’t have a good time on the middle as they found it hard to score runs against a tight RR bowling unit. Virat Kohli fell for 7 runs and captain Faf du Plessis made 25 runs. Runs came with much effort for RCB as Rajat Patidar (58) hit 4 fours and 3 sixes and Glenn Maxwell made 25 in 13 balls with 2 sixes and 1 four.

Rajasthan Royals started off belligerently as 16 runs came off the first over bowled by Mohammed Siraj, with Yashasvi Jaiswal hitting two fours and 1 six. Jaiswal fell for 21 runs to Josh Hazlewood.

But Buttler found the fifth gear early on and kept the pressure on the pedal. Sanju Samson made 23 runs before becoming Wanindu Hasaranga’s victim and Devdutt Padikkal made 9 runs. But Jos Buttler continued his assault and completed an almost one-man demolition job.
