Butler century overshadowed Kohli brilliant century

Rajasthan Royals 189 for 4 (Buttler 100*, Samson 69, Topley 2-27) beat Royal Challengers Bengaluru 183 for 3 (Kohli 113*, Faf du Plessis 44, Chahal 2-34) by 6 wickets

Jaipur: Jos Buttler (100* off 58) and Sanju Samson (69 off 42) set the stage on fire in Jaipur with sparkling knocks as Rajasthan Royals (RR) made it four wins in a row by beating Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.

Buttler and Samson helped RR recover from the early loss of Yashasvi Jaiswal with a fantastic 148-run stand as they unfurled a range of exquisite strokes to power the home side to a six-wicket win.

Buttler made the occasion of his 100th IPL match more special by bringing up his 100 and finishing off the match in style with a six.

Earlier, a cracking 8th IPL century by Virat Kohli helped Royal Challengers Bangalore post 183/3.

Kohli put on an exhibition in elegance, timing and placement to score 113* (72), adding 125 runs with Faf du Plessis (44 off 33) for the opening wicket to help the visitors post a competitive total.

Chasing 184, Rajasthan Royals were jolted early as Reece Topley struck off the second ball of the innings to dismiss Yashasvi Jaiswal.

Captain Sanju Samson and Jos Buttler then got together, mixed caution with aggression to steady the ship.

Buttler upped the ante in the final over of the Powerplay, smashing 4,4,6,4 off Mayank Dagar to take RR to 54/1 at the end of six overs.
