The Englishman reached his ton in 16.1 overs, beating Pat Cummins to the max. On the first delivery of the 17th over, Buttler received a full throw and cleared his front leg to hit it long on a six and also to reach his third IPL century and also his second in the ongoing campaign.

Initially, KKR captain Shreyas Iyer won the toss and chose to bowl.
Buttler was eventually fired on the fourth delivery of the 17th when he surpassed a delivery by Cummins. He sent it all the way to the fine leg fence where Varun Chakravarthy caught it with ease.
Captain Sanju Samson also played an important knockout, registering 38 runs off 19 balls against KKR.
Meanwhile, Sunil Narine was on top form for KKR, taking two wickets in four overs, leaking just 21 runs.
