RCB vs RR IPL 2022: Siraj takes a stunning catch to dismiss the in-form orange cap holder Jos Buttler, watch video here.
RCB vs RR IPL 2022: Jos Buttler has been in a tremendous form this season with the bat in this season of IPL, having already smacked 3 centuries. However, Royal Challengers Bangalore pacer Mohammad Siraj managed to stop the batter, that too with his fielding effort.
Batting at 8*(8) while 2 wickets had already fallen on the other end on a score of 33 runs in 4 overs. The 5th over of the innings was being bowled by Australian pacer Josh Hazlewood, and he banged the first delivery short and just outside off. The Royals' opener was cramped for room as he tried to pull the ball.
Buttler smacked it flat trying to roll his wrists on the shot. Siraj, fielding at mid-on, dived forward and grabbed it with both hands. The pacer caught it with soft hands and ensured the ball didn't spill while his elbow hit the ground.
Buttler was dismissed after just scoring 8 runs in 9 balls with 1 boundary. While this was a rare failure for Buttler this season, Josh Hazlewood has been consistent in the wicket-taking department for Royal Challengers Bangalore ever since he joined the team in this season of the Indian Premier League.
While talking about the match, Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Faf du Plessis won the toss & opted to bowl first against Rajasthan Royals in the 39th match of IPL 2022. While Royal Challengers Bangalore are placed on the 5th spot with 10 points against their name in 8 matches - 5 wins and 3 losses while Rajasthan Royals have the same number of points but in 7 matches.
