The IPL 2021 has become very interesting due to the participation of top T20 players in the league. For the first time, RCB has got off to 4 consecutive wins in the tournament, while CSK has brought back their form this season. While Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders have been average in the tournament. The batting unit of KKR has the likes of Eoin Morgan and Dinesh Karthik who have not performed well. In the match against Rajasthan Royals, they got off to a bad start with 25 runs in the powerplay. The rest of the batsmen could not boost the team and they posted only 133 on the board.
The Australian bowlers have a likeness towards short-ball, due to the pitches in Australia that support pace and bounce, especially in Perth. They have a habit of taking wickets with a back-of-length of delivery as their primary option. Today, no.1 test bowler Pat Cummins hit England batsmen Jos Buttler on the helmet with a nasty bouncer in the 2nd over of the innings.
The ball shattered Jos Buttler and physio was called immediately and batsman got a regular spray on his neck. Then after few minutes, he looked fine and continued to play until he was dismissed by Chakravarthy for a score of 5 off 7 balls.

The Rajasthan Royals managed to win the match against Kolkata Knight Riders in a comfortable manner. After getting a below-par total of 134 on the board, the Rajasthan Royals did not get off to a good start with Jos Buttler being dismissed early. But, they came back strongly with the partnership from Sanju Samson and Shivam Dube. Then David Miller supported the team well and finally, they registered a clinical victory at the end.
