Buttler, who stuck four centuries and held the Orange Cap last season, recorded his fourth ‘no run’ score of IPL 2023, registering the joint-most ducks in an IPL season. Prior to him, six other players also registered four ducks in an IPL season.

Opting to bat, skipper Faf du Plessis (55 off 44) and Glenn Maxwell (54 of 33) scored half-centuries to help RCB post a competitive 171 for five.

Their bowlers, led Wayne Parnell (3/10) then put up scintillating display to bowl out Rajasthan for a paltry 59 in 10.3 overs.

Michael Bracewell (2/16)and Karn Sharma (2/19) picked two wickets each.

Earlier, du Plessis and Maxwell stitched a 69-run partnership for the second wicket to set the platform for the total.
