Jos Buttler scores 95 for the second time in IPL, three times victim of ‘nervous nineties’

New Delhi. In Sunday’s exciting match in IPL 2023, Sunrisers Hyderabad defeated Rajasthan Royals (RR vs SRH) on the last ball of the match. Abdul Samad gave this victory to SRH by hitting a six off the last ball of RR’s Sandeep Sharma. Batting first, Rajasthan Royals took two wickets in 20 overs with the help of Jos Buttler’s 95 (59 balls, 10 fours and four sixes) and captain Sanju Samson’s 66 runs (38 balls, four fours and five sixes). Khokar scored 214 runs. In reply, Anmolpreet’s 33, Abhishek Sharma’s 55 and Rahul Tripathi’s 47 were followed by Glenn Phillips’ 25 (seven balls, one four, three sixes) and Abdul Samad’s unbeaten 17 runs (seven balls, two sixes) in the last minute. With the help of Sunrisers won the match on the last ball.

It was also a coincidence that on Sunday, 7th May in IPL, two batsmen got involved in nervous nineties. Shubman Gill of Gujarat Titans remained unbeaten after scoring 94 runs in the match between Gujarat Times and Lucknow Supergiants on Sunday.
