We are mere hours away from the start of the third Royal derby of the 2022 IPL season as Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals will lock horns in the second qualifier. Both teams have played some incredible cricket throughout the season but will face each other one last time to confirm the final berth.
But entering this fixture there are quite a few individual battles that could take centre stage in this crucial playoff. The fight for the purple cap could be decided in this game as the top two wicket-takers of the tournament in Yuzvendra Chahal and Wanindu Hasaranga are separated by just one wicket.
Similarly, the altercation between Riyan Parag and RCB bowlers Harshal Patel and Mohammed Siraj could find its conclusion. Hence this match promises high octane action throughout the 40 overs. Similarly, fans of both teams have been extremely active on social media, so let us look at some Twitter reactions ahead of the start of the game.
There can only be ☝🏻 winner and it all comes down to Qualifier 2️⃣.
A fitting end to a magnificent race for the Purple Cap. 🤩

No we are not waiting for
Chahal Encounter ❎
Boult Encounter ❎
Buttler Encounter ❎
We are waiting for this arrogant, irritating bihu dancer Riyan Parag's attitude to be broken by Kohli and Harshal Patel ☑️
