IPL: Jos Buttler hits highest T20 score as Rajasthan Royals beat Chennai

IPL: Jos Buttler hits highest T20 score as Rajasthan Royals beat Chennai

Buttler amassed 95 of Royals' total of 177, hitting 11 boundaries and two sixes, but the chase got closer than Royals would've liked.

The 43rd match of IPL 2018 will start at 8 pm IST, 3:30 pm BST. They trail league leaders Sunrisers Hyderabad by four points.

ICE Baba predicts that CSK wins this match today. And then, how Buttler has often this season, he pulled back the strike-rate in a bid to anchor the rest of the innings. He hit Harbhajan Singh for two boundaries and a six in the next over. The momentum swung Chennai's way when Ravindra Jadeja had Ajinkya Rahane in the next over as Rajasthan eventually ended the Power Play at 57 for 2.

Buttler and Sanju Samson then added 45 runs between then over the next seven overs before the latter was run out following a disgusting mix-up.

Stturat Binny also failed to last long as Chennai seemed destined for another win.

Best economical pick - Krishnappa Gowtham has been magnificent with the new ball. The openers put on 48 run stand with Buttler scoring the bulk of the runs. And then with two needed off two, Buttler cut the ball to cover point and collected the two more - courtesy overthrows - to seal Royals' fifth win in 11 games. Jadeja gets the ball to turn as Rahane edges one to slip where Raina takes an easy catch.

An overthrow in the next ball allowed him to complete the victory as the Rajasthan dugout erupted in celebration.

Shane Watson had cracked a century in CSK's 64-runs win at home base in Pune, when seven bowlers had teamed up to curtail RR batting ambitions.

With the Powerplay overs yielding 55 runs, there was a period when CSK didn't get a boundary for 21 balls before the ninth of the innings by Sodhi helped the duo break shackles. Whereas, RR has played 10 games, too, in this season. Prior to this, Raidu scored a run of 12 runs.

CSK's most consistent performer over the years, Raina struck 52 off 35 balls with the help of six boundaries and a six, adding 86 runs for the second wicket with veteran Shane Watson (39 off 31 balls).

From overs 14 to 19, CSK managed only three shots to the boundary - one each off Ben Stokes, Jaydev Unadkat and Archer - as Royals fought back by either bowling pinpoint yorkers or going full and wide to MS Dhoni and Sam Billings.

Billings departed in the final over while trying to take a single as wicket-keeper Jos Buttler's throw from behind demolised the Englishman's stump. Raina hit a six and six fours to reach the milestone.He made 50 in 32 balls.

For Rajasthan, Archer bagged couple of wickets but leaked 42 runs while Sodhi scalped one conceding 29 runs.
