Rajasthan Royals batter Jos Buttler has been in tremendous form in the ongoing IPL 2022 and he is the current holder of the Orange Cap with 272 runs from five games. The batter has brought his A-game to almost every match for the franchise this season and the bowlers have found it tough to dismiss the batter early. In the match against Gujarat Titans, Buttler seemed to be at his destructive best as he reached 50 off just 23 balls and it took a real special delivery from pacer Lockie Ferguson to send the batter back to the pavilion.
Buttler first smashed Ferguson for a six on the fifth delivery of the sixth over to reach his half-century but Ferguson gave the perfect answer the next delivery and Buttler was sent back to the hut.
On the final ball of the sixth over, Ferguson deceived Buttler with a slower delivery. The ball was a leg-cutter and Buttler failed to dig it out. The delivery beat Buttler’s outside edge and it crashed onto the base of off and middle stump.
