Two of the best batsmen to have served the Indian cricket team, Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 Match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Punjab Kings. While the stakes in the game were incredibly high, the two former cricketers were enjoying their time in the stands. Laxman shared a picture from his meeting with Dravid on Instagram.

It should be noted that both Laxman and Dravid retired from international cricket in 2012 but continued to serve the national team. While Dravid is the head coach of the men’s team, Laxman heads the National Cricket Academy. The two, who have played a lot together, are also known to share a great bond and their friendship was evident in Laxman’s post.

VVS Laxman shared the picture with a cheeky caption

“Looks like I’m talking to a wall!?? Thanks for the lovely pic Samridhi Thapliyal,” Laxman captioned the photo on Instagram. The comment section filled up in absolutely no time as fans watched the two great batsmen get together. Glad to see it in the frame.

Coming into the game, Punjab Kings put up a clinical performance and registered a 54-run victory at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai. Batting first, Kings scored 209/9 thanks to quick half-centuries from England batsmen Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone. The score could have been even bigger had Harshal Patel not pulled things back towards the end with a four-wicket haul.

During this, RCB Lost wickets at regular intervals and could not even come close to chasing the big target. The Faf du Plessis-led side were eventually restricted to 155/9, losing the competition by a wide margin. Meanwhile, this result has further complicated the playoff equations and only time will tell what the final points table will look like.

RCB now have only one league stage match left and will have to beat Gujarat Titans to stay in the race. PBKS, on the other hand, now have equal chances of qualifying for the playoffs as they will have to win their remaining two games along with keeping an eye on the net run rate.
