Brabourne became KKR bowlers' graveyard as Buttler hits his second ton

Jos Buttler, continuing his sterling form hit his third century of IPL in the match against the Kolkata Knight Riders in Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai. This is Buttler’s second century of the season. He reached the three-figure mark with a maximum in the 17th over of Pat Cummins. But Cummins had the last laugh as he managed to send away Buttler in the same over.
