In Qualifier 2 of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, Rajasthan Royals (RR) defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) by seven wickets at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Friday to go into the final.

Chasing the paltry target of 158, RR got off to a tremendous start, with Yashasvi Jaiswal (21) and Jos Buttler adding 61 runs for the opening wicket. However, Buttler stayed firm and made sure his side got the better off RCB.

The English superstar continued his golden run with the bat, smashing his fourth century of the fifteenth season of the cash-rich league, inspiring RR to book birth in the final of the 10-team competition.

Buttler stayed unbeaten at 106 off 60 deliveries, including 10 fours and 6 sixes, as Rajasthan chased down the target in 18.1 overs with seven wickets in hand.

Earlier, Prasidh Krishna and Obed McCoy shined with the ball for Rajasthan to restrict RCB at 157/8 in their allotted 20 overs. Krishna picked up a three-wicket haul, including the prized scalp of former RCB skipper Virat Kohli. Similarly, McCoy also bagged three scalps for 23 runs in his quota of 4 overs.

For the Challengers, Rajat Patidar, the centurion from their previous fixture, once again stood up and top-scored for his side. Patidar smashed a brilliant 58 from 42 deliveries, including seven boundaries.
