Twitterati reacts after 6,4,4,2,4, OUT from Jos Buttler
Whoaaa what an over that was….Buttler had hit 20 runs against Rabada in the 5 balls & eventually Rabada takes his revenge……there was no need to play that shot but that’s also happens when you’re in so good form I guess. Superb cricket ??? #rrvspbks #IPL2022— Sanskar Gemawat (@_SanskarG) May 7, 2022
Thank you Kagiso Rabada!— Cricketjeevi (@wildcardgyan) May 7, 2022
KL Rahul please go ahead and get the Orange cap. There is a slight opening now. Can’t tolerate racist Buttler winning it.

20 runs and wicket, however, is a win for PBKS considering their batting to follow.
