Forgetting the average bowling performance in the previous match, Rajasthan Royals will have to put up their best performance in the 2nd qualifier of IPL 2022 today against Royal Challengers Bangalore, whose spirits will be high after the win in the previous match. RCB defeated Lucknow Super Giants in the Eliminator after a dramatic run of luck to make it to the playoffs. The expectations from the team, which have been waiting for the title for the last fourteen years, are high and the players are eager to live up to them. Royals team lost to Gujarat Titans in the first qualifier. After a few matches in Kolkata, now the caravan of IPL has reached Gujarat.
Patidar will be all eyes again: Rajat Patidar, who has given the best performance of his career in Eliminator, would like to maintain this momentum. RCB as Patidar’s alternate player could not be sold in IPL mega auction
Be a part of it and one innings changed his destiny. Both Kohli and captain Faf du Plessis are big game players and would look to play big innings after the low scores in the previous matches. On the other hand, Dinesh Karthik would once again like to play the role of a finisher.
Sanju-Butler has to be stopped – Biggest challenge before Bangalore bowlersThe challenge will be to curb the bats of Jos Buttler and Royals captain Sanju Samson. Both scored runs against Gujarat but could not lead the team to victory. Samson would like to convert a good start into a big innings. Buttler, who has scored three centuries this season, goes with the bat again, then getting a big total on the board will not be a big deal.
Dinesh Karthik (Rajasthan Royals):- He has only one half-century in the name of big innings this season, but he has played innings that affect the result of the match. So much that no one else has played this season. Match 15, Runs 324, Highest 66*, Average 64.80, Strikerate 187.28, Fifty 1.
Jos Buttler (Royal Challengers Bangalore): This English batsman, who is far ahead of other players in the race for the Orange Cap, has the power to play match-winning innings. If Buttler gets the opening over, he can play a big innings. Match 15, Runs 718, Highest 116, Average-51.29, Strike rate-148.35, Century 3, Fifty 4.
