Delhi Capitals all-rounder Axar Patel took perfect revenge against Jos Buttler in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 game against Rajasthan Royals (RR). The match between the two teams is underway at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. 

After setting a massive target of 222 runs for Rajasthan Royals to chase, Delhi Capitals are landing timely blows with the ball. The Rishabh Pant-led side is making sure that they chip in with wickets at regular intervals and keep themselves in the game, despite strong batting by Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson. 

Axar Patel has been the vital cog behind Delhi Capitals taking wickets at regular intervals. He provided his team with the crucial breakthrough of Jos Butter and got his revenge to perfection. The keeper-batter hit him for a big six and after that, he made a sensational comeback by taking his wicket. 

Axar Patel bowled a tossed-up delivery on a fuller length outside off. Jos Buttler threw his bat but didn't get it right. He managed inside edge and the ball went on to crash into the stumps to send the batter packing at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. Rishabh Pant was elated after the dismissal of Buttler.
