After RCB’s win against LSG in a nail-biting match, commenter and former team India coach Ravi Shastri commenting on Qualifier 2 on ‘Cricket Live’ show on Star Sports said,

“It’s been 14 years for RCB (as they’ve never owned that elusive silverware) and 13 years since Rajasthan won their last title in the inaugural season. So between the two of them, it’s been 27 years (laughs).  and it will be a battle of Royals.  Let’s wait for that one, It’s going to be a great contest as both the teams would want to win it badly.”

Meanwhile, Graeme Smith, who has played for Rajasthan Royals, also agreed with Ravi Shastri. Smith said that RR captain Sanju Samson will be under high pressure vs RCB in Qualifier 2 of IPL 2022 after losing a close match against GT.

“I think the challenge will be on Rajasthan Royals after their disappointing loss against Gujarat Titans (in Qualifier 1). They must be hurt. Can they pick themselves up? RCB on the other hand is on a high,” he said.

They’ll be keen to turn it around and put back a high skill level in the game. So, I agree with Ravi that we are going to have a cracker of a game on Friday night,” he added.
