Jos Buttler has scored more than 800 runs in this season of IPL
A clinical seven-wicket win for Rajasthan Royals. For as much as Jos Buttler’s innings took the game away from their grasp, their bowlers – especially the pacers – also played a big part in restricting RCB to an under-par score of 157. Yashasvi Jaiswal and Sanju Samson also made handy contributions with the bat. Yet another fine campaign for RCB ends without a trophy in hand, while RR – with a supreme all-round performance – have given the tournament’s best team, Gujarat Titans, a sound warning ahead of the final.

WICKET Sanju Samson has been undone by Wanindu Hasaranga yet again. This time stumped. Much needed respite for RCB.
Shahbaz Ahmed is having a bit of a forgettable outing here. After being taken apart for 19 runs in his opening over by Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson unleashes his attack on the left-arm spinner – hammering him for 16 runs.
Infinity Writes @WritesInfinity That six by Samson to Harshal Patel was absolutely authoritative. And that smile after the six was a sign to the selectors. For Samson, Playing well is the best revenge! #RCBvsRR #SanjuSamson #cricbuzzQnV 04:56 PM • May 05, 2022

WICKET: Obed McCoy is in action yet again. This time with a stunning forward diving catch. Glenn Maxwell’s stay has ended after a brief blitz. The Australian batter was threatening to give RCB’s scoring rate a big push.

Hello and welcome to the Qualifier 2 match of IPL 2022 set to be played between Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore. Only win away from a place in the final, where the winners of the contest will face Gujarat Titans, there is all to play for tonight. Rajasthan Royals did put in a good performance in Qualifier 1, but were eventually outclassed by David Miller’s late assault. RCB, on the other hand, were in danger despite some brilliant individual performances in the Eliminator against Lucknow Super Giants. There isn’t a lot to separate the forms of the two teams. Who do you think will emerge victorious tonight?
