The match witnessed two contrasting centuries, with Virat Kohli shining for Bangalore before Buttler's heroic performance stole the show. As Rajasthan celebrates another triumph, they continue to showcase their dominance in the Indian T20 League, while Bangalore will be left to ponder over their missed opportunities in yet another closely contested encounter.
Despite a valiant effort from Bangalore, led by Virat Kohli's magnificent century, Rajasthan managed to chase down the formidable target of 183 with five balls to spare. Kohli's masterful innings, supported by a crucial partnership with Faf du Plessis, laid a strong foundation for Bangalore's innings. However, Rajasthan's bowlers, including Yuzvendra Chahal and R Ashwin, displayed exceptional skill and precision to contain the runs and keep the pressure on the opposition. In response to Bangalore's total, Rajasthan got off to a shaky start, losing Yashasvi Jaiswal early to Reece Topley. However, Jos Buttler and Sanju Samson turned the tide in Rajasthan's favor with a formidable partnership, decimating the Bangalore bowling attack with their aggressive strokeplay. Despite facing some resistance from the Bangalore bowlers, including Mayank Dagar and Himanshu Sharma, Buttler and Samson exhibited resilience and determination, propelling Rajasthan towards victory. Samson's milestone of crossing 4000 runs in his Indian T20 League career further highlighted his significance in Rajasthan's batting lineup.
Rajasthan have done it! 4 wins in 4 games! Rajasthan emerged victorious in a thrilling encounter against Bangalore, securing their fourth consecutive win of the season. Jos Buttler's scintillating century, achieved in his 100th game, sealed the deal for Rajasthan in style. Buttler's explosive batting, culminating in a remarkable hundred off just 58 balls, showcased his sheer dominance on the field. His determination to reach the milestone with a six epitomized his aggressive yet calculated approach to the game, clearing the ropes in spectacular fashion. With this century, Buttler not only propelled Rajasthan to victory but also etched his name in the annals of cricketing history.

Jos Buttler is ecstatic and celebrates by taking off his helmet and raising the bat. Shimron Hetmyer shares a hug with him. RAJASTHAN WINS BY 6 WICKETS!

Mohammed Siraj bangs in a quick bouncer now, but a bit too high, outside off, Shimron Hetmyer leaves it alone. Wided. However, Faf du Plessis has challenged that decision, but the replay shows that it is the correct call.

FOUR! That is probably the game for the hosts! This is short of a length and on middle, Shimron Hetmyer stays back and heaves it hard, it flies in the air but lands between deep mid-wicket and deep square leg and goes away for a boundary. Rajasthan just one hit away from the win now!
