JAIPUR: Rajasthan Royals opener Jos Buttler announced his return to form in his 100th IPL match with a magnificent 58-ball century as he guided his team to a 6-wicket victory against Royal Challengers Bengaluru at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium. Rajasthan Royals managed to chase down the target of 184 put up by Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the final over.

Batting first, RCB scored 183/3 in their 20 overs after star batter Virat Kohli brought out his vintage self to slam his eighth IPL century via 113 not out off 72 balls. However, the target put up by RCB appeared below par as RR opener Butler and skipper Sanju Samson (69 off 42 balls) smashed the bowlers all around the park to chase it down with five balls to spare. This was the fourth straight win for RR in the ongoing IPL season and with this win, the team has come first in the points table.

Brief scores:

Royal Challengers Bengaluru 183/3 in 20 overs (Virat Kohli 113 not out, Faf du Plessis 44; Yuzvendra Chahal 2-34, Nandre Burger 1-33) lost to Rajasthan Royals 189/4 in 19.1 overs (Jos Buttler 100 not out, Sanju Samson 69; Reece Topley 2-27, Mohammed Siraj 1-35) by six wickets
