The Rajasthan Royals will return to the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune to battle the Royal Challengers Bangalore tonight in IPL 2022. Both franchises have been impressive in the 2022 edition of the league so far. RCB and RR met once earlier this season, where Dinesh Karthik’s splendid knock helped the Royal Challengers Bangalore defeat the Rajasthan Royals.
To avoid a similar performance from Karthik tonight in Pune, the Twitter admin of the Rajasthan Royals tagged him in a tweet and asked him to take an alternate route to reach Pune from Mumbai. The best and fastest route is the Mumbai-Pune Express Highway.
However, as per the RR admin, there is heavy traffic in that area. So he suggested an alternate route, which would see Karthik going from Mumbai to Gujarat to Madhya Pradesh to Odisha to Telangana to Andhra Pradesh and finally to Pune.
Here is the tweet that the RR Twitter admin posted:
Hey @DineshKarthik, seems like there's heavy traffic on the Mumbai-Pune express highway, here's a shorter route: pic.twitter.com/SjsZzZ1v0h

Some RCB fans joked in the comments box below that instead of Dinesh Karthik, Jos Buttler should be the one who should take the route. Buttler is the Orange Cap holder in IPL 2022 right now and has scored two centuries in his last two innings.
Parthiv Patel feels Rajasthan Royals is the only team with a complete bowling attack in IPL 2022
Ahead of tonight’s battle royal between the two royal franchises of IPL 2022, former Royal Challengers Bangalore wicket-keeper Parthiv Patel opined that RCB may find it tough to win tonight because in his view, RR are the only team to have a complete bowling attack this season. Here’s what he said on Cricbuzz:
“If there is one team that has a complete bowling attack in IPL 2022, it is Rajasthan Royals. Prasidh Krishna is a different bowler while Obed McCoy is a left-armer. Ashwin and Chahal are a good spin pair. There is Trent Boult as well, so they have a lot of variations.”
