Most 100’s In IPL: RR progressed to the final game of the season thanks to Jos Buttler’s magnificent century, during which he stayed undefeated on 106 runs off of 60 balls. Buttler scored his fourth century of the campaign and led Rajasthan Royals to their IPL final in a very long time which is almost since 14-years, courtesy of his performance. The Englishman brought his total for the competition to five aggregate runs scored.

Following Friday’s Qualifier 2 game between RR and RCB, Rajasthan standout batsman Jos Buttler tied the record set by Virat Kohli in 2016 for most hundreds scored in a single season in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Buttler’s century was the 4th he has scored for RR in the current season.

Jos Buttler ensured the Rajasthan storm their way into the 2nd final of the T20 League, the team’s first final appearance since the inaugural season of the tournament in 2008, so when late Shane Warne inspired them to victory. Buttler hit 106 runs without being out off of just 60 deliveries. Buttler blasted 6 sixes and ten fours as his team chased down a 158-run mark in only 18.1 overs to eliminate Bangalore from the IPL 2022 tournament.

Most 100’s In IPL: Jos Buttler Proven As Consistent Performer For RR

Buttler scored his maiden T20 century in the previous season of the Indian Premier League for RR. He has now reached five hundred’ in the IPL 2022. Buttler scored three hundred throughout the first quarter of the game, during which he was having successful at-bats almost every time he came to the box.

Buttler’s performance dropped significantly in the 2nd part of the season. He played to his abilities and reached his best performance at the appropriate moment again, scoring 89 versus Gujarat Titans in Qualifier 1 despite the fact that his team ultimately lost. Buttler returned to form and reserved his finest performance for the must-win game.

Buttler and Yashasvi Jaiswal, both of whom were openers for Rajasthan, got the team off to a dazzling beginning by attacking the Royal Challengers of Bangalore spinners during the powerplay. Buttler reached his fifty-run mark in just 23 balls, but he exploited the long stand game while the RCB bowlers were trying to keep the situation under control in the middle overs.

Buttler quickly shifted back into attack mode and assisted RR in finishing the race with a pair of sixes in the final overs after the team had made significant progress to the finals, where they will face Gujarat Titans (GT), on May 29.
