RR vs RCB: Aakash Chopra Makes His Predictions For Qualifier 2 Clash- "Faf Will Not Get Out For A Zero This Time"

“Faf du Plessis and Rajat Patidar will together score more than 60 runs. I am not thinking Rajat Patidar will be scoring 80-90 runs here. I think he will be dismissed eventually, Yuzi Chahal might trap him but he will score runs. Faf will not get out for a zero this time, he will score some runs.”

The former India batter likewise anticipates fair commitments from Jos Buttler and Devdutt Padikkal for the Rajasthan Royals. Aakash Chopra elaborated:

“Jos and Devdutt will together score more than 60 runs. Devdutt has batted well this entire season and Jos has finally got his form back. You will not say that Jos does not have form now. So you will expect more than 60 runs from them.”

Buttler and Padikkal scored a sum of 15 runs in the last game between the two teams. Be that as it may, the ongoing Orange Cap holder had scored an unbeaten 70 in RR’s first match against RCB.

Aakash Chopra anticipated Wanindu Hasaranga and Yuzvendra Chahal to be among the wickets. He reasoned:

“Chahal and Hasaranga will together take more than 3 wickets. It is a big ground in Ahmedabad, there are chances of getting wickets here with leg spin, there is a possibility.”

The reputed commentator finished up by foreseeing an RCB win in the clash of the Royals. Aakash Chopra observed:

“I am going with a Royal win, it is easy na. I don’t do an easy job at all. I am going with Royal Challengers Bangalore to win even though I feel that a team that has done well continuously and finished second in the league phase does not go out that easily. But I am still going with RCB to win this one.”

RCB and RR won one each out of two league stage matches played between the two teams. While RCB dominated the first game by four wickets, RR won by 29 runs in their next conflict.
