Buttler first scored 100 with the bat to help Rajasthan post 193/8 in the allotted 20 overs and then as Rajasthan defended the score, the Englishman took a sensational catch to send Daniel Sams back to the pavilion. Chasing 194, Mumbai Indians were in a good spot after Ishan Kishan and Tilak Varma registered half-centuries but Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal were able to spin a web and in the end, Sanju Samson’s side registered a comfortable win.
In the 16th over bowled by Yuzvendra Chahal, Daniel Sams went for a big shot on his very first ball of the innings. Sams had no timing and the ball hung in the air for a long time, and Buttler tracked back and timed his dive near the deep mid-wicket region to take a splendid catch.
