IPL Playoff 2022: RCB vs RR Live stream - When and where to watch on OTT

This year’s Indian Premier League (IPL) has had some great moments and some nail-biting matches as well. After the group stages and two playoff games, Royal Challengers Bangalore will face Rajasthan Royals in the second qualifier, with the winners heading straight to the final to face Gujarat Titans. 

Rajasthan Royals and newbies Gujarat Titans met in the first qualifier at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata. RR put up 188 on the board for GT to chase, with the Orange Cap holder Jos Buttler getting 89 off 56 and captain Sanju Samson making 47 off 26. However, GT came out firing and managed to chase down the total with three balls to spare. Captain Hardik Pandya and David Miller’s big hitting towards the death overs confirmed GT’s spot in the finals, with RR having to play the second qualifier. 

RCB met Lucknow Super Giants in the first eliminator yesterday, and put up an impressive 207 on the board in the first innings. While Virat Kohli failed to impress yet again, Rajat Patidar put on a show for the fans at Eden Gardens, scoring 112 off 54 including 12 boundaries and 7 sixes. Dinesh Karthik also fired towards the end to give them a respectable total. However, LSG came out to bat and KL Rahul and Deepak Hooda tried to salvage the situation with scores of 79 and 45 respectively, taking LSG close to the total. A game-changing spell from Josh Hazlewood towards the end saw LSG fall 14 runs behind, taking RCB to the second qualifier. 

As RCB and RR face each other for the spot in the IPL final, both teams will put out their best team. While Patidar has confirmed his spot after a powerhouse century, RCB will hope Glenn Maxwell could impact the middle overs with the bat with Kohli and captain Faf Du Plessis opening. Wanindu Hasaranga and Hazlewood would be their go-to bowlers. 

RR on the other hand, will depend on Buttler and Samson to get them off to a flying start with Shimron Hetmyer waiting to go big in the death overs. Ravichandran Ashwin and Yuzvendra Chahal could both impact the game with the ball for RR. 

Whoever wins this second qualifier will head straight to the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad for the IPL final. Gujarat Titans led by Hardik Pandya will keep a keen eye on the qualifier, as they get a chance to play the finals on their home turf. 

The second qualifier with RCB and RR is set to be played on May 27, with the game starting at 7:30 PM IST. Fans across the country can watch the game on their televisions screens as well as on OTT through smartphones and other devices. The coverage of the second qualifier will be available on Disney+ Hotstar.
