IPL 2022 RCB Vs RR Match Prediction: Rajasthan Will Face A Confident RCB Side That Is Looking In Red-Hot Form In Qualifier 2
The winner of this match will face Gujrat Titans in the final while the losing side will go home.
Royal Challengers Bangalore will face the Rajasthan Royals in the 2nd Qualifier of IPL 2022 at the Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium, Ahmadabad on 27th May (Friday).
Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore will be keen to win this match as this is the last chance for both teams to qualify for the final of IPL 2022 where Gujrat Titans are already waiting for them.
Rajasthan Royals lost the 1st Qualifier by 7 wickets against Gujrat Titans but they can still qualify for the final and take their revenge on Gujrat. Batting first, Rajasthan Royals managed to post 188-6 on the scoreboard in the 1st Qualifier. The English star Jos Buttler played a superb knock of 89 runs from 56 balls including 12 fours and 2 sixes. The skipper Sanju Samson also smashed 47 runs from just 26 deliveries including 5 fours and 3 sixes.
However, this target wasn’t big enough for the destructive batting lineup of Gujarat, who chased it down in the last over with 7 wickets in hand due to some exceptional batting from David Miller and Hardik Pandya.
Shubman Gill and Matthew Wade set the chase by scoring 35 runs each while Miller and Pandya did the rest. 16 runs were required from the last over and David Miller smashed three successive sixes to win the game for his side. David Miller and Hardik Pandya remained unbeaten on 68*and 40*runs respectively for Gujrat in that match.
On the other hand, Royal Challengers Bangalore thrashed Lucknow Super Giants by 14 runs in the Eliminator. Batting first in the match, Bangalore posted a huge total of 207-4 on the board. After losing Faf du Plessis, Virat Kohli, and Glenn Maxwell (ie: the 3 main batters of RCB), the young Rajat Patidar played a magnificent knock to rescue his side. Patidar remained unbeaten on 112 runs from just 54 deliveries.
In reply, Lucknow Super Giants failed to chase down the total despite the brilliant knocks from KL Rahul and Deepak Hooda who smashed 79 and 45 runs respectively for Lucknow. Josh Hazlewood picked 3 wickets while Harshal Patel delivered an economical spell at the crucial stage of the game.

RCB vs RR Possible Top Performers
Probable Best Bowler of the Match: Jos Buttler
The English star batsman Jos Buttler played an outstanding knock of 89 runs from 56 balls in the previous game for RR. He smashed 12 fours and 2 sixes in his superb knock. The right-hander is still the orange-cap holder of the season with 718 runs from 15 games. Jos Buttler became the 7th player to complete 700 runs in a single IPL edition and he is expected to score another big knock against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 2nd Qualifier.
Probable Best Batsman of the Match: Josh Hazlewood
Josh Hazlewood was the star for RCB in the final overs against Lucknow Super Giants in the Eliminator as he picked up the two crucial wickets of KL Rahul and Krunal Pandya on two successive deliveries to win the game for his side. Hazelwood has been the key bowler for RCB in the death overs throughout this season.
The right-arm pacer has picked up 18 wickets from 11 games this season with an average of 19.66. Hazelwood will also get some help from the pitch at Narendra Modi Stadium and he is expected to be the star bowler in this match.
RCB vs RR Who Will Win
Rajasthan Royals made some mistakes and lost the Qualifier despite scoring enough runs on the board. Rajasthan Royals have many key players in both their batting and bowling departments but they need to forget that defeat against Gujrat Titans and concentrate on this knockout game.
Rajasthan will face a confident RCB side that is looking in red-hot form. RCB eliminated Lucknow Super Giants in their previous game which was one of the strongest sides of this season. RCB has a pretty solid batting line-up with the likes of du Plessis, Kohli, Patidar, and Maxwell while Dinesh Karthik is present to finish the games for them. It will be very difficult for Rajasthan to beat an in-form RCB side and they will have to give their best to make it into the Finals.
Hence, we predict that RCB will beat RR in Qualifier 2 this season.
