RCB skipper Samson praises Buttler for century against RCB


Following his side’s six-wicket win over Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in their Indian Premier League (IPL) match, Rajasthan Royals (RR) skipper Sanju Samson lauded Jos Buttler’s century, saying before it was a matter of time before he came good with the bat.

Virat Kohli’s blitzkrieg century went in vain as Jos Buttler’s thunderous hundred lit up the Sawai Mansingh Stadium to power Rajasthan Royals (RR) to a six-wicket victory over Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) on Saturday.

Following the match, Samson said during the post-match presentation, “I think anything below 190, with a little bit of dew coming in, with the batting order we have, I felt it was a good total to chase.

Touchwood, few more games to go, we are bowling well. And we have got a break, which is helping us charge up and come in fresh. It was just a matter of time with Jos. He just needed to get through the powerplay and middle a few balls.”

Jos’s century came after a long period of struggle. Before this century, Buttler had scored just 183 runs in his previous ten IPL innings, which included three ducks and a knock of 95 against Sunrisers Hyderabad last year.
