Head to Head Battles in 2022:
Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals have faced each other twice in the tournament so far, and both teams have secured one win each in the clashes. Qualifier 2 will serve as a tie-breaker between the teams.
Road to Qualifier 2:
Rajasthan Royals lost to Gujarat Titans in the qualifier 1, but due to being placed in the top two at the group stage, they will have another chance to make it to the final by going against Royal Challengers Bangalore. On the other hand, RCB defeated Lucknow Super Giants in the Eliminator to make their way to the second qualifier.
Predicted Playing XIs:
RR vs RCB Best Fantasy XI:
Virat Kohli ©, Jos Buttler, Rajat Patidar, Sanju Samson (vc), Dinesh Karthik, Shimron Hetmyer, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shahbaz Ahmed, Wanindu Hasaranga, Trent Boult, Harshal Patel
Battles to Watch Out For:
Virat Kohli vs Trent Boult: Virat Kohli could not leave an impact in the Eliminator against Lucknow Super Giants, but he will be supercharged to get a big score in the qualifier 2. On the other, the ace fast bowler of RR, Trent Boult, has the ability to swing the ball both ways, which can trouble Kohli.
Jos Buttler vs Josh Hazlewood: Buttler is the orange cap holder of this edition of IPL. He played a phenomenal knock-in qualifier 1 and will also look to register an explosive knock for his team. To stop Buttler, RCB will need Josh Hazlewood to bowl with the best of his rhythm in the powerplay.
RR vs RCB Predicted Winner:
Royal Challengers Bangalore have all the momentum. That is why they are the favourites to win the match.
