This incident happened in the second delivery of the fourth over. Notably, Buttler was not in good touch ahead of this fixture, and on Tuesday, he had a painfully slow start. In 16.1 overs, RR were 131/3, with Buttler struggling at 43 runs from 39 deliveries.

The Royals needed their batting kingpin to fire all cylinders and Buttler tried to do exactly that. Off a Yash Dayal delivery, he tried to hit the ball over long-off but could not get his connection right. It should have been an easy catch for Hardik Pandya but the GT slipped, resulting in a boundary.
