Buttler's scintillating knock of 124 off 64 balls and captain Sanju Samson's 48, powered Royals to a mammoth 220/3 in 20 overs. Buttler - whose bat had been mostly silent in the tournament so far - played one of his finest knocks in the shortest format. The explosive right-handed batsman pummelled 11 fours and eight sixes in his knock. Along with Samson, he strung a record partnership of 150 runs for the second wicket and the duo played some exquisite shots during their stay into the middle. Buttler, initially, batted with caution as he notched up his fifty off 39 deliveries. But the swashbuckler unleashed his beast mode later on and took every bowler on remand and scored at his will. It was Buttler's incredible hittings that helped the Royals post their highest total of the season.
