On the 5th ball of the over, the left-arm pacer finally managed to give SRH the much-needed breakthrough by dismissing Buttler. It was a back-of-length delivery from Farooqi. The ball nipped back in slightly and did the track as Buttler’s attempted punch backfired. He was beaten by pace as the ball went on to disturb the timber.
Before departing, Buttler scored 54 off 22 balls with the help of 7 fours and 3 sixes. Talking about the game, the Royals were on 132 for 1 at the end of 11 overs. Jaiswal was batting on 48 off 30 balls while captain Sanju Samson was unbeaten on 29 off 14 balls.
