Indian T20 League 2022 Playoffs: Rajasthan vs Bangalore Match-Ups

By Parameswaran Sankaranarayanan May 26, 2022

Rajasthan and Bangalore will square off against each other for a place in the final of the Indian T20 League 2022 season. The Sanju Samson-led franchise, who lost to Gujarat by seven wickets in Qualifier 1, haven't reached a final since the 2008 season. After eliminating Lucknow on Wednesday, Bangalore will be hoping to make it to the title clash for the fourth time.

We analyze some of the most interesting First Games fantasy cricket Match-Ups in the Indian T20 League 2022 Qualifier 2.



V Kohlii outscored Faf du Plessis in the Eliminator clash against Lucknow. However, the Bangalore skipper is still the franchise's leading run-scorer, with 443 runs in 15 innings. Kohlii, on the other hand, has improved his form in the second half of the season. He has registered close to 300 fantasy points from his last six matches and could win the Match-Up against his teammate.

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season:

V Kohlii - 34.26; F du Plessis - 42.46



Jos Buttler became the first player this season to go past 1000 fantasy points after his emphatic knock in the Qualifier 1. The Englishman scored a 47-ball 70* in the first meeting between Rajasthan and Bangalore this season. Glenn Maxwell, dismissed for a duck in his last outing against Rajasthan, will be keen to make an impact on Friday. He scored just nine runs against Lucknow in the Eliminator. The Rajasthan batter has the upper hand in this Match-Up. 

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season:

J Buttler - 71.06; G Maxwell - 50.58



A quickfire 47 helped Sanju Samson rack up 70 fantasy points against Gujarat. It was the second time in three matches the Rajasthan skipper picked up 50+ fantasy points. All-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga is two wickets away from overtaking Yuzvendra Chahal's tally of 26 wickets. The Sri Lankan, likely to finish behind Samson in the fantasy points chart against Rajasthan, dismissed Deepak Hooda and finished with 1/42 in the Eliminator.

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season:

S Samson - 49.13; W Hasaranga - 52.73



Yuzvendra Chahal faces an uphill task against Bangalore's Rajat Patidar. The Purple Cap holder could only clinch four fantasy points in Rajasthan's opening playoff fixture. Meanwhile, Patidar, on Wednesday, became the first player to hit a three-figure score in the playoffs after his stunning 112* against Lucknow. Despite claiming just two 50+ fantasy points in his last nine matches, Chahal has the edge over Patidar in this Match-Up. 

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season:

Y Chahal - 49.53; R Patidar - 58.85



Ravichandran Ashwin, who had a forgettable outing with the ball against Gujarat, will be confident ahead of the Qualifier 2 clash as he picked up 3/17 in the reverse fixture against Bangalore this season. Dinesh Karthik played a vital hand in Bangalore's victory over Lucknow. The 36-year-old's unbeaten 37* saw him cross 300 runs in the 15th edition. Ashwin is likely to have the last laugh in a Match-Up of seasoned players 

Average fantasy points (per match) in 2022 season:

R Ashwin - 39.33; D Karthik - 36.86
