Rajasthan Royals (RR)'s Jos Buttler and Yuzvendra Chahal made massive moves in the IPL 2022 Orange Cap and Purple Cap rankings on Tuesday. However, their contributions didn't amount to much on the day as RR tumbled to a four-wicket defeat to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Wankhade Stadium.

Buttler's 70 (47) powered RR to 169-3 in 20 overs. It looked like a match-winning total when Chahal and Trent Boult combined to reduce RCB to 87-5 after 12.3 overs. But Dinesh Karthik played like a proper finisher once again, scoring an unbeaten 44 off just 23 balls. Bengal all-rounder Shahbaz Ahmed offered brilliant support with 45 (26) and the duo took RCB over the line with five balls to spare.

RR maintained their spot at the top of the IPL points table 2022 despite registering their first loss of the season. But their net run rate has almost halved from 2.100 to 1.218. RCB, meanwhile, rose from No. 7 to No. 6 and are now tied with five other IPL teams, including RR, on four points. Although their net run rate moved to positive territory (+0.159) after the win, RCB are still last in the top six.

Buttler's 70-run-knock took him head-and-shoulders ahead of his peers in the Orange Cap race. After three matches, he has 205 runs to his name - exactly 70 runs ahead of Mumbai Indians' (MI) Ishan Kishan. But the young Indian wicketkeeper-batter will get a chance to close the gap against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) on Wednesday.

RR's Shimron Hetmyer and skipper Samson also made gains in the rankings, with both at No. 5 and No. 10 in the rankings respectively. Hetmyer has been in brilliant touch so far this season and after a brisk 42, his total runs stand at 109, with Samson being just 16 runs behind.
