In the second qualifier of IPL 2022, the team that wins the match between Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RR vs RCB) will play the final, but from this match, Rajasthan captain Sanju Samson will definitely be worried about a bowler.
The 15th season of the Indian Premier League will get its second finalist team on Friday. Rajasthan Royals will face Royal Challengers Bangalore (RR vs RCB) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. This is Qualifier-2 and the team winning it will reach the final where they will face Gujarat Titans. Gujarat had defeated Rajasthan in the first qualifier to secure a place in the final of IPL-2022 directly. Now Rajasthan has a second chance to make a place in the title match. Rajasthan played the final in 2008 but after that this team could not do this work again. After winning the title of the first season, Rajasthan is looking for its second title. Under the captaincy of Sanju Samson, would like to end the drought from Rajasthan. For this it is necessary that the captain’s bat moves. But before this match, there is a matter of concern for Sanju.
Sanju is considered to be a very talented batsman. He plays big innings every season but the lack of consistency is clearly visible in him. Keeping this shortcoming aside, if we talk about the match against Bangalore, then there is no less concern for Sanju because a Bangalore bowler has made Sanju his pawn. This bowler is leg spinner Wanindu Hasaranga
Hasaranga must be avoided
Before the second qualifier, if the figures between Sanju and Hasaranga are seen, so far these two have faced each other a total of six times. Except once, Hasaranga has trapped Sanju in his spin. That is, five times Sanju has become a victim of this leg-spinner. He has played 23 balls for Hasaranga and scored 18 runs at an average of three. Rajasthan and Bangalore have played two matches this season and in both these matches, Sanju could not overcome Hasaranga in any way. Both times Hasaranga took the wicket of the Rajasthan captain. Sanju played 16 balls for Hasaranga in these two matches, out of which he could hit only one boundary and two sixes. This leg-spinner took out nine balls empty.
heavy in international cricket
Even if seen in International T20 cricket, Hasaranga’s upper hand has been heavy. In two matches held in 2020 and 2021, the Indian batsman has scored two runs in 11 balls and has been dismissed thrice. In such a situation, this is not a good thing for Rajasthan. Sanju’s bat walking is very important for Rajasthan. He likes to score runs fast which is the biggest requirement of the shortest format of cricket.
