The Indian Premier League (IPL) is underway and so is breathtaking cricketing action. The tournament is only into its fifth game and fans have started getting their dose of cricket. The Tuesday evening is seeing Rajasthan Royals taking on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the fifth match of the 15th edition of the tournament. Hyderabad invited Rajasthan to bat after winning the toss.

Jos Buttler and Yashaswi Jaiswal opened the innings for RR but did not look comfortable against SRH pacers bowling with the new ball. Buttler, in particular, looked in all sorts of trouble against Bhuvneshwar Kumar in the first over of RR innings. He almost lost his wicket on the fourth delivery of the over but fortune for him, it was a no-ball.

After spending some time on the crease, Buttler got accustomed to the pace and bounce and then brought his famous ramp shot against Umran Malik. Buttler went sideways and helped the 143 Kph delivery from Malik over the boundary ropes to earn six runs for him and his team.

Watch Buttler's six here:

It was pure audacity from Buttler to deposit a ball coming at him at 143kph into the stands. But it was not surprising as the batter is known for his unconventional shots. While Buttler hit a beautiful six, SRH bowlers looked in trouble to keep their foot behind the line while bowling. They bowled as many as four no-balls in the first four overs.

First, it was Bhuvneshwar Kumar who bowled a no-ball on the fourth delivery of his very first over in the innings, which also kept him deprived of a wicket (of Jos Buttler's). Then Umran Malik overstepped in the very next over. Fans were left surprised when Bhuvi bowled another no-ball in his second over. Adding to SRH's woes, Washington Sundar too overstepped in his fist over, making four no-balls in four overs for SRH.
