Former India coach Ravi Shastri believes that the Rajasthan Royals (RR) vs Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) Qualifier 2 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 will be a close encounter as both teams will not give their oppositions any easy pickings.
RCB have failed to win the IPL title on numerous occasions now, whereas RR have failed to repeat their success from the inaugural IPL season in 2008.
“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). So between of them it’s been 27 years (laughs). They both want it badly and it will be a battle of Royals. Let’s wait for that one,” said Shastri on Star Sports Cricket Live show.
