On the 5th ball, the Mumbai Indians spinner bowled a delivery wide outside off with the angle but the umpire didn’t declare it as wide.
However, on the last ball, the off-spinner once again delivered a ball outside off and Buttler toe-ended it straight to the fielder at long-off and Suryakumar Yadav grabbed an easy catch. Buttler’s innings ended at 67 runs off 52 balls, including 5 fours and 4 sixes.
In the end, Ravichandran Ashwin played an amazing 21 runs cameo knock to help Rajasthan Royals score 158 runs at the loss of 6 wickets.
