The IPL 2021 has gone off to a flying start as the first few days have produced some scintillating matches. While the tournament is often known for the sheer quality of cricket, the fans also regularly witness some heartwarming moments on the field. IPL remove all the boundaries as players from across the globe play at the same platform and the comradery between them is just delightful to watch.
During the match no. 16 between Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore, Virat Kohli's side dominated the whole contest right from the beginning and RR never looked in the contest. However, something that stood out was the spirit with which the game was played.
Moment of the match
When Devdutt Padikkal was completely smashing the bowlers in all parts of the ground, it would have been quite frustrating for the RR players. However, it did not stop Jos Buttler to lend a helping hand to his opponent when required. Actually, the left-handed batsman's shoes laces had got untied and he would have had to remove his gloves to tie them. This is when Buttler stepped up, tied his shoe laces and silently went back to his fielding position.
