Sunil Narine's all-round heroics went in vain as RR extended their lead at the top of the IPL points table with a two-wicket win over KKR, thanks to a brilliant hundred from Jos Buttler. It seemed like KKR were coasting before Buttler and Rovman Powell's partnership changed everything and got RR their 6th win of the season. The KKR pacers let the game slip in the end as Buttler scripted an incredible run chase in the end.

Narine scored his 100 in just 49 balls as the RR bowlers struggled to execute their plans after acing the first 4 overs of the KKR innings. Angkrish Raghuvanshi and Narine would then go after the bowlers as KKR scored more than 100 runs between overs 7 and 15 to get to the total of 223 runs in their 20 overs. A late cameo from Rinku Singh would

prove to be crucial as none of the other KKR batters apart from Narine and Raghuvanshi went past the 30-run mark.

The RR innings would lose its way early on as they lost Yashasvi Jaiswal and captain Sanju Samson cheaply at the beginning. Riyan Parag would come in and give the innings direction and momentum as RR looked to be ahead at one point. But Harshit Rana's smart slower delivery caused the demise of Parag and the RR innings lost its way completely.

However, Buttler had other ideas as he scored his 7th IPL hundred to get his side home by 2 wickets in the end as KKR bowlers lost the plot in the end.

RR will face MI next in Jaipur on April 22 while KKR will welcome RCB to the Eden Gardens on April 21.
