Star Aussie batter Marnus Labuschagne has revealed the name of the franchise he thinks will win IPL 2022. He is backing Royal Challengers Bangalore to end their title drought in the 15th season of the tournament. Also, he is confident of seeing Virat Kohli among runs in the remaining matches.
He had asked his fans to pick the winner of this year’s edition, with Gujarat Titans, Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore fighting for the coveted trophy.
When one of the fans questioned him about his choice, the right-handed batter said – “RCB. Virat Kohli will go big.”
For the record, RCB defeated Lucknow Super Giants by 14 runs in the Eliminator. They will clash with Rajasthan Royals in Qualifier 2 at the Narendra Modi stadium. The winner of this match will take on Gujarat Titans in the finale of the cash-rich league.
Meanwhile, Virat has scored just two fifties in 15 contests and his poor form has been a cause of concern for the Bangalore-based team.
