On Friday, RCB failed to bring their 'A' game and were completely outclassed by a rampant Rajasthan team.
The likes of Virat Kohli, Faf du Plessis and Glenn Maxwell failed to make a meaningful contribution with the bat and despite a half-century from Rajat Patidar, RCB were restricted to an under-par 157 for eight in 20 overs.
In the chase, Jos Buttler once again came to party for RR, scoring a sensational unbeaten century. He also crossed the 800-run mark for the season, a feat achieved only twice before in the history of IPL.
Buttler remained unbeaten on 106 off 60 balls as RR reached the target with seven wickets in hand and 11 balls to spare.
While RCB will go back to the drawing board and start focusing on improving further next season, RR will have their eyes on the big price.
In the IPL 2022 final on Sunday, Rajasthan will be up against the might of Hardik Pandya's Gujarat Titans, who have been the team to beat this season.
