Following RR’s historic victory, Riyan Parag, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Others submit to Jos Buttler: WATCH

At Eden Gardens on Monday, the Rajasthan Royals made history with an exciting two-wicket victory against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). With their incredible heist, the lads in pink and blue achieved the greatest run chase success rate in IPL history. At one point, it seemed unachievable, but England batsman Jos Buttler’s tenacity, will, and confidence allowed him to succeed.

In the fifteenth over, RR’s chances of winning were so slim that their probability was less than 1%. Buttler changed his game, hitting Varun Chakravarthy four boundaries in that over to reach his half-century off only 36 balls. He amassed his seventh IPL century in the following 19 deliveries, guiding RR to an impossibly close victory with a 60-ball 107 not out.

With a single off the last delivery of the innings, Buttler made history by handily winning by two wickets. The players in the dugout sprang from their seats, ran right up to the game’s hero, and surrounded him with cheers. Everything was jubilant.

While Sanju Samson, the captain, showered the English batter with admiration, saying, “I’m blessed to have Buttler on my side,” the kids kneeled down to him.

Avesh Khan was delighted too. He did not even face a ball throughout his eight wicket partnership of 38 runs with Buttler. “I had the best seat in the house to watch his batting,” the man said.

The celebration’s video was posted on the IPL’s official X account.

“The Jos Buttler special from last night is still leaving us in shock. And we think his teammates feel the same way. showcasing unfiltered feelings caught on camera after a fantastical conclusion,” the video’s title said.

Former Australian all-rounder Tom Moody praised Buttler in the meantime, stating that his game-winning century against the Kolkata Knight Riders underscores the need for great players to play professional cricket.

“Well, he persisted because he is an exceptional athlete, which just goes to show that being an elite athlete is necessary in the world of T20 cricket, or any other kind of cricket, nowadays. It’s no longer enough to just be a skilled player, and Moody said that period has long since past.

Because of his exceptional athletic ability, he is still waiting for the last ball to score the winning run. “It’s that easy—he’s recovering from a sickness, and he did so rather quickly because he is resilient and physically strong,” Moody said.
