Veteran cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has made a big prediction about the possible winner ahead of the major clash between Sanju Samson’s Rajasthan Royals (RR) and Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB). One of the two teams will be knocked out of IPL 2024 in today’s match.

The winner will go on to face Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Qualifier 2 on Friday. The Rajasthan Royals (RR) are currently out of form and are coming off four back-to-back losses and a rained-off game. On the other hand, the RCB Army seems to be in terrific form and have notched up six consecutive wins.

This shows RR as the underdogs, when a couple of weeks ago they were red-hot favourites. Even as they seemed unbeatable in the beginning of the IPL season, the last four games have exposed frailties in their batting and bowling.

Now, veteran cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has predicted that it might be a one-sided match.

“What RCB has done is nothing short of phenomenal. Firstly, to believe that they can bounce back. That requires something special. You have to say that their leading players like Faf, Kohli and others, they are the guys who are most encouraging other players. Both of them have played extraordinary cricket,” Gavaskar was quoted by Star Sports.

He further added, “Rajasthan have lost four-five matches. They have not played their last game as well. They have been out of practice. Unless they do something special that KKR did today, despite not playing for 11 days, it could well turn out to be another one-sided game. My fear is it will be another one-sided game tomorrow where the RCB will walk all over RR. I will be surprised if that does not happen.”
