IPL 2018 Jos Buttler masterclass for Rajasthan stuns Chennai

England batsman Jos Buttler's scintillating display helped Rajasthan Royals in defeating Chennai Super Kings by 4 wickets on Friday in a match played in the eleventh edition of the Indian Premier League.

Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper Kane Williamson admitted that the plans set up by his side for Amabti Rayudu failed to work as the opener went on to smash a brilliant unbeaten 100 off just 62 balls. Rayudu capped a remarkable turnaround of a season with his maiden T20 hundred, and Watson fell for 57 off 35. He is on third spot among top run getters with 535, behind Sunrisers captain Kane Williamson (544) and Kings XI Punjab's Lokesh Rahul (537). Rashid Khan bowled a fine spell giving away only 25 runs, though, he could not get any wickets.

Dwayne Bravo once again leaked too many runs.

Rashid went wicketless and conceded 25 runs while Bangladeshi left-arm spinner Shakib Al Hasan was hit for 41 runs for no success.

Sunrisers Hyderabad, on the other hand, have had a near-perfect run in IPL 2018, thanks largely to their bowling attack.

Rayudu also scored a half-century in Chennai's four-run win over Hyderabad in their previous meeting.

By the halfway mark, CSK had galloped to 93 for no loss.

CSK has nice batsmen like Shane Watson, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Sam Billings who are able to take the team to big scores.

Hyderabad, which has already qualified for the playoffs with 18 points, relied on half-centuries by Shikhar Dhawan (79 off 49 balls) and captain Williamson (51 off 39), who lost the toss and was put in to bat.

On Sunday, the returning Deepak Chahar led Super Kings' efforts with the ball, getting it to pitch in the length and back-of-a-length zones and getting it to hoop around during the Powerplay.

Asked whether the absence of Steve Smith as a result of the ball-tampering scandal was pinching Rajasthan Royals hard as their batting looks brittle, Unadkat said it was no use ruing about the absence of any player.

As it stands, they have won five of their six chases, including hunting two 200-plus scores with late-innings assaults.

The top four teams at the end of the group stages make it into the play-off stages. The duo, however, departed in quick succession to give a twist to the match.

Royals required 12 from the final over, sent down by Bravo, and the equation remained close when only four runs came from the first three balls. Not only was the 123-run stand broken, but Hyderabad also slipped to 141 for 3 in the 17th over, with two new batsmen in.

A wicket at that point would have reduced Chennai to 143 for three with 37 needed from 28 balls.
