First IPL game after three years and Munaf has his first wicket.

11.1 over for Munaf Patel to Buttler, out Caught by Brendon McCullum!! First IPL game after three years and Munaf has his first wicket. And it is a vital breakthrough. Another start and another stutter for Buttler. His rope is coming to an end, especially with Simmons waiting in the wings. Short of a length delivery, Buttler pulls and gets it high on the bat, straight down McCullum's throat at long-on. Replays show that it was a slower ball - the leg-cutter and Buttler had to manufacture all the pace, which he couldn't. Buttler c Brendon McCullum b Munaf Patel 26(24) [4s-1 6s-2]
