Rajasthan Royals defeated every team except one team so far this season and made it to the final and now the final is against the same team, against whom it has not won.

Taking a lesson from one mistake and not repeating it the next time is the wisest thing to do. This applies equally to almost every aspect of life. Sports and players are also not untouched by this. Competitions on the field (or court/table/pool etc.) are tough and there is always room for slipping or faltering. Still, the one who learns from them moves ahead in the next attempt, he climbs the stairs of success. For now, this is in IPL 2022. Rajasthan Royals (Rajasthan Royals) can be done. The first champion team of IPL has not only left behind the mistakes and failures of the past several seasons, but this season too, coming out of its disappointment of some important occasions, has made its place very close to success.

Rajasthan Royals secured their place in the final of IPL 2022 for the first time after the first season of 2008 i.e. after 14 years. Rajasthan defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by 7 wickets in the second qualifier match played in Ahmedabad on Friday 27 May and stepped into the final of the IPL for only the second time. Rajasthan has been one of the most consistent teams of this season and this is the reason why this team made a great comeback despite the defeat in Qualifier 1.

Strong performance in the league stage

The successful season of Rajasthan Royals started on 29 March against Sunrisers Hyderabad and in the very first match, Sanju Samson’s team showed their strength with bat and ball. Rajasthan had scored 210 runs and won a big win by restricting Hyderabad to just 149 runs. Since then, there has been continuity in the performance of the team. Although they lost every match in between, but by the end of the league stage, the team finished second in the table with 18 points. Rajasthan won 9 out of 14 matches during this period, while losing only 5 matches.

During this, Rajasthan defeated only the rest of the eight teams except Gujarat Titans at least once. He won both the matches against the new IPL team Lucknow Super Giants. Rajasthan had to face one defeat each from Gujarat, Bangalore, Mumbai, Kolkata and Delhi.

However, finishing in the top two was an advantage for Rajasthan and they got a chance to play in the second qualifier, where they defeated RCB.

Still, if we talk about the best players, then only two names are at the top. First Jos Buttler, who is batting unbelievably this season. Butler, who scored the best century in the qualifiers against RCB, had scored three centuries in the season even before this.
