England white-ball captain has scored the winning single needed off the last ball to seal a quite remarkable two-wicket win.

RR skipper Sanju Samson said Buttler is a special player and when he is on song, no target is safe.

The England player credited RR’s Director of Cricket Kumar Sangakkara for enhancing his self belief.

“That’s something Sangakkara has told me a lot – there’s always a breaking point,” he said.

“The worse thing you can do is to not fight and give your wicket away. He (Sangakkara) just tells me to stay there and at some point, the momentum will change. That’s been a big part of my play over the last few years.”

Buttler, who now has seven IPL hundreds, termed Tuesday’s knock as his best in the league history.

“Very happy with the win. We were wondering like the wickets we lost. Rovman (Powell) hit a couple of sixes and that’s when we felt like we were in the game. Some luck also, they also played really well. The quality of spin they had, they bowled really well. This ground suited them.” – Sanju Samson

“Jos (Buttler) did what he does for us in the last 6-7 years, so happy for him. It (Buttler’s knock) should go right on top. Being an opener, if he gets in, no runs are unchaseable. He does something special,” Sanju Samson.
